UTPA Broncs mascot Bucky made some new friends as he and children throughout the community listened to authors tell stories at the Festival of International Books and Arts (FESTIBA) Community Day at Jardín Del Arte in Edinburg March 22.

Community Day, which featured readings and book signings from authors, art shows, music and activities for the whole family, closed out FESTIBA, The University of Texas-Pan American's annual celebration of the arts and literature.

The weeklong festival, which had the theme "Literacy: Inspiring Healthy Minds and Healthy Bodies" this year, included many activities that promoted the arts and the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
