(Aug. 27, 2008)--Two traditional events, Fajita Fest and Howdy Rowdy Bash, will close Roadrunner Days with activities from 8 p.m. to midnight, Thursday, Aug. 28 at the UTSA 1604 Campus.

Sponsored by the Greek Councils, Fajita Fest will begin at 6 p.m. on the west mall adjacent to the Convocation Center. There will be free fajita dinners for UTSA students and music by Digital DJ, Jason Perez. The event highlights the UTSA Greek Councils and the fraternities and sororities on campus. In its fourth year, Fajita Fest is a popular social forum for students and an opportunity to learn about fraternities and sororities.
Immediately after Fajita Fest, will be the 13th annual Howdy Rowdy Bash. This annual UTSA tradition introduces students to athletics programs and helps build school spirit with the assistance of UTSA mascot Rowdy Roadrunner. Each year, the event has a slightly different slant. This year, there will be a showing of the summer movie hit, "Iron Man."
Additionally, there will be several carnival-style events where students can have their photos taken in a big red chair, street signs with their names on them, an inflatable obstacle course and free pizza while supplies last. A rally to introduce the fall sports at UTSA will feature the cheerleaders and dance team.
The rain location for the events is the University Center ballroom.
