Fiesta all Around Us

Have you ever been to a fiesta? I have countless of times. When I was growing up we live in a community where everyone practically knew everyone. That is one reason why fiesta in our place is a more fun compared to others because we all work together in planning it months before.

Fiesta here includes street dancers with face and body paints. And then there are performers who play variety of instruments from maracas to a simple tambourine and even a hohner accordion. These performers go around different houses to entertain and even scare the little kids. There are games where both young and old can compete with each other. Prizes are raffled to lucky homeowners and winners of games. It’s the best weekend in our small town.
