Celebrate Fiesta UTSA in pictures
(April 21, 2017) -- Old and new traditions came together as The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) celebrated 40 years of Fiesta UTSA. Hundreds of Roadrunners joined the community for this family-friendly event on April 21 on the UTSA Main Campus.
The iconic Sombrilla Plaza was transformed into a colorful wonderland of more than 70 food and activity booths. Fiesta goers of all ages enjoyed games, live music by The e7 Band, UTSA alumnus DJ Gumby, piñatas and cascarones. Students sold food, drinks and other items to raise funds for student organizations. UTSA Interim President Pedro Reyes, Fiesta Royalty and Rowdy even stopped by to join in on the fun.
Now that 2017 Fiesta UTSA is in the history books, take a look at the best and brightest pictures from the memorable event.
