Transcript In addition to the carnival booths, there were also barbecue cook- off teams. The teams were local businesses, campus organizations and the different colleges. There were several categories that were judged at the Fiesta. Photo by Tony Bullard. The Dunking Booth was a popular carnival attraction at the Fiesta. Several organizations and academic departments participated. There were a variety of different carnival booths from a cake walk to face painting. Photo by Tony Bullard. Members of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity prepare to put up their front. The fraternities and sororities did large-stage productions that included singing and dancing. Whether the organization put on a large-stage production or sponsored a carnival booth, the incredible amount of preparation time by each organization make Fiesta successful. Photo by Tony Bullard. Frontier Fiesta The Greatest College Show On Earth Returns It was called "The Greatest College Show on Earth." And as those who participated in Frontier Fiesta during its heyday at the University of Houston well know, the event more than lived up to its billing. All the proceeds from this year's Frontier Fi- the national attention it so greatly deserves," said Patrick Brown, Frontier Fiesta Association Chairman. Frontier Fiesta was initiated in 1940 by a student group. It grew from a variety show and bingo to a week-long Western extravaganza conducted in ;i esta benefitted M.D. Anderson Library. "We are extremely pleased that we were chosen to have the funds benefit the library," said Jack Hall, librarian for the library. "We are happy the students are taking an interest in the library." In the second year of its revival, the Frontier Fiesta Association, an organization established to plan and promote the event, was dedicated to bring this tradition back to campus. The event raised thousands of dollars, which were used to benefit the students. For example, the swimming pool, located near the Quadrangle, was built, because of monies raised during the Fiesta. "During the v40s and v50s, Frontier Fiesta created enthusiasm within the university community, but more importantly, gave the University of Houston large frontier town constructed from the ground up by students. "It was really a great time from the start to the close. The students had one hell of a good time. And it was an opportunity for the city and for surrounding cities to come andseetheuniveristy and have a good time," said Richard "Racehorse" Haynes. World War II broke out and Fiesta was discontinued, but it was revived by students in 1947. For the next 13 years, Fiesta was an integral part of UH campus life. "We didn't have 100 years of tradition or even 50 years of tradition to lean on. So you had a lot of kids trying to make tradition, trying to make something that would bring the city into the university and the university into the city," said Haynes.
