Bid Day of this year was a looker with dazzling colors, happy tears and two little white drones flying around snapping photos. Yes, you read that right! Bid Day had 1,400 ladies running out of the Grove to their sorority houses. The University Police had to shut down two roads: Sorority Row and Rebel Row, just for the young ladies to run into their sisters’ arms.
Here is a photo gallery as we did our best to capture today’s festivities. Feel free to share some of your sweet Bid Day photos with us if you like! Email them to hottytoddyphotos@gmail.com with “Bid Day” in the subject line, please and thank you! For submitted photos from Bid Day, check out our gallery of submitted photos.
