Hundreds of people dressed in Halloween costumes packed The University of Texas-Pan American Fieldhouse to celebrate the annual Carnival of the Great Pumpkin Saturday, Oct. 29. The UTPA community and public enjoyed the festival of food, fun and games. Children, who attended, took the opportunity to battle their opponents with spongy sticks while on an inflatable gladiator arena, which was one of the many activities held during the carnival. Pictured are Ivan De Avila, a seventh grade student at Travis Middle School in McAllen, and Jonathan Silva, student at Hargill Elementary.
