From Fiesta about Fiesta Fiesta Launch Party: Join us for the official opening of Fiesta 2018! Enjoy live entertainment, greet Official Fiesta Royalty and special guests. Buy, sell or trade Fiesta pins and medals at Pin Pandemonium. Join the fun as cascarónes are broken and the crowd proclaims “Viva Fiesta!” to kick off the Alamo City's biggest, best festival.
