Transcript Early Fiesta City students who had a desire to stimulate school pride and spirit on the campus. The theme of FRONTIER FIESTA is to re-live the stirring life of the Old West by erecting a pioneer western town — Fiesta City — and offering entertainment in the form of saloons (soft drinks only), can-can dancers, singers, novelty acts, dancers, bearded cowboys, outlaws, peace officers, and a jail. FRONTIER FIESTA has grown from a three- night show in 1940, seen by 5,000, to its present size of a six-night show, with an attendance of 100,000 people annually, and a total gate of almost $100,000 each year. The proceeds of FRONTIER FIESTA, after expenses, are donated to worthy University projects . . . for example: On August 25, 1954, Marvin Brisco, Chairman of the 1955 FRONTIER FIESTA, signed over a $106,402 check to the University. This amount represented profits from recent FRONTIER FIESTAS and was used to help pay for the University's new $160,000 swimming pool. Many months are spent in planning and producing FRONTIER FIESTA.
