Hundreds of youngsters and their parents were in the Halloween spirit Saturday, Nov. 1 as they packed The University of Texas-Pan American Fieldhouse to celebrate the 42nd annual Carnival of the Great Pumpkin. The festival offered the community plenty of food and game booths hosted by UTPA’s student organizations, fun, and music provided by local band 24/7. Pictured is Jessica Sanchez from Edinburg bowling for ghosts at one of the carnival booths. All proceeds made from booth sales went to UTPA's student organizations.
