CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — It was a birthday of Viking proportions on Tuesday at Del Mar College.

Students and staff celebrated their mascot Valdar's second birthday.

Mascots from all over the Coastal Bend, from the Corpus Christi Hooks' Sammy the Seagull to the Chick-Fil-A cow, were in attendance to say happy birthday.

"I think we did a great job with Valdar. He's been a great ambassador for Del Mar College. He's out in the community. He's doing a lot of community work," said Rito Silva, Vice President of Student Affairs.

Valdar and his friends celebrated the big day in true mascot fashion with a dance-off.
