In 1948 we presented the A Phi O showboat, a live talent show of assorted acts. In
1949 blackface was introduced and the show

1950 the showboat scene was adopted and
the show was called the Bayou Queen. From
1950 thru 1955 the bayou queen never took

Frontier Fiesta. In 1952 she won First Place
show and had her highest honors that year.
This year the Bayou Queen will again
bring to Frontier Fiesta the showboat program of the old west.
