Queens College’s annual homecoming weekend will be held this Saturday and Sunday, with a special anniversary reception for the classes of 1943, 1953, 1963 and 1973.

The weekend will include a talk by Hollywood movie producer Alan Siegel, a 1973 graduate; a performance by pop singer Cyndi Lauper; a carnival; and a presentation of the college’s international programs by faculty members.

Lauper, a native of Ozone Park, will perform songs from her Tony Award-winning musical “Kinky Boots,” which is now on Broadway.

Saturday’s event focuses on the class receptions from 5 to 7 p.m. Sunday’s programs run from noon to 6:30 p.m.

Other Sunday highlights include students performing excerpts from “South Pacific,” a tailgate party and soccer scrimmage.

Queens College officials estimate more than 40 percent of its 100,000 alumni live in the borough.

For tickets, contact the Alumni Relations Office at (718) 997-5534 or go online to qc.cuny.edu/homecoming.
