Fiesta San Antonio 2008Posted: February 13, 2008
Mariachis again? I think it is ironic, however, that Fiesta is so strongly Mexican, cuando fueron los gringos en San Antonio that decided to commemorate the defeat of the Mexicans at the Battle of San Jacinto (let’s not forget that “Mexicans” also fought for Texas liberty). Yes Fiesta began as a gringo victory but has since been taken over by La Raza – except for many of the Queens and of course the Texas Cavaliers, who crown their King Antonio (always a gringo). This is why LULAC started the Rey Feo -to counter the Cavaliers. Funny though, our current Rey Feo is a guy named Brian Weiner! Well at least we know we don’t discriminate.lol
Update: I just learned that a new Rey Feo has been selected for 2008 his name is Fernando Reyes. ¡Felicidades! and ¡Viva Fiesta!
