Under clear blue skies, Baylor University students, faculty and staff celebrated "Diadeloso," the university's traditional spring "play day" April 11.
The one-day break from classes began in 1934 and has had several names throughout the years - All University Day, Physical Fitness Day, May Day. In 1966, the Baylor student body voted in favor of "Diadeloso" or "Day of the Bear," the official name for the past 36 years.
The Baylor Chamber of Commerce sponsored the day's events, which featured various sports and game tournaments, food and drink booths, live entertainment, a fraternity and sorority step show and other activities. Since this year's theme was of a patriotic flavor, Diadeloso wrapped up with a fireworks display on the Baylor intramural fields, followed by a showing of the film "Pearl Harbor."
