Cal Poly’s Open House is this weekend, with most activities happening on Saturday. The tractor pull is scheduled for 1 pm. I guess they haven’t totally got rid of the old “Poly Royal” name as a Poly Royal parade is scheduled for 9:30 on Saturday.
If you’re not familiar with the history, the university used to call it Poly Royal (also known as “Party Royal” to the students). It started getting out of control in the 90’s until one year, there were mini-riots and property damage. So, no more Party Royal, bring on the Open House.
The change appears to have worked as it’s not the party weekend as it once was.
