EDINBURG – The 48th Carnival of the Great Pumpkin will provide young ghosts and goblins a howling good time in its last year hosted by The University of Texas-Pan American.
Activities will be held inside and outside the UTPA Fieldhouse Saturday, Oct. 25 from 6-9 p.m. and admission is free and open to the public. This year the carnival will have the theme of “Despicable Me,” a popular animated 3-D film from Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment.
“Although we are sad that this is the last year for the Carnival of the Great Pumpkin at UTPA, we are confident UTRGV will continue this time honored tradition,” said Daniela Venegas, program coordinator for the Office of Student Involvement. “The community really loves this event and the safe space it provides the children and their families to celebrate Halloween.”
