Picnic Day.

In 1909 UC Davis held its first Picnic Day. To promote the festival the students had Molly the cow walk from Davis (then Davisville) to Berkeley, which she did in 97 hours and 11 minutes. Since 1909 Picnic Day has become (what is believed to be) the largest student-run event in the nation. The 94th Picnic Day will be held this Saturday, April 19.
