Today I was introduced to the world of Fiesta by going to the event: A Taste of New Orleans at the Sunken Gardens in Brackenridge Park. There was live Zydeco band, food booths- and fun!!! The lead singer of the band was a DIVA, pouring water all over herself, dancing in the crowds and having a helluva good time!
April and I also tasted fried alligator covered in Louisiana hot sauce. (No joke- it tasted like chicken, just chewier)Also note if you look closely on my shirt, I am blinging out my first Fiesta medal. Every event has its own medal and you collect them, wear them on a sash and flaunt what events you have frequented. I'm thinking I should make my sash look like the Texas flag. First I need to collect a few more medals though...
At the end of the day- FIESTA is simply another reason for damn proud Texans to PARTY
