I’m learning about Fiesta, the annual celebration in San Antonio – and I’ve noticed a few things – first there are the medals:
These two (on the left the CEO of San Antonio Fiesta John Melleky and on the right, a lovely woman from the Culinary Institute of America campus) both are displayed the traditional Fiesta spirit – with medals.
The medals are created by companies, non-profit groups and individuals and given and traded during the festival – and as you can, proudly worn too.
I also saw plenty of colour, like these three at last night’s Niosa party at La Villita near the Riverwalk:
Colourful floral crowns and ribbons worn by lots of women and crazy hats worn by a few. Their friend had a small pinata on his sombrero – and definitely was clearing a path in the party crowd – and making everyone smile.
But my fave, was a combination of Fiesta and sports fan – since this is Spurs territory and the NBA playoffs are on:
If you’re going to party at Niosa apparently – its a go big or go home mentality – Viva Fiesta!
