On May 7, Oliver Smoot ’62 kicked off MIT’s Moving Day festivities by leading a two-layered parade across the Charles. A flotilla including folding boats, an electric hydrofoil, and a motorized swarm of kayaks plied the waters as people (and the occasional robot) strolled, danced, or rolled across the Mass.

The revelers celebrating MIT’s first 100 years in Cambridge then headed off to a tent full of retro games, plus dance parties across campus.
