Transcript FieeU 7/**/ party cougar style o. 'ne of the many traditions at UH was Cougar Fiesta, a party held in parking lot 15F. It consisted of about 75 booths sponsored by on and off campus organizations. Matt Scott, third place winner of the Cougar Fiesta Talent Show, said, "The Fiesta is like a big street party.

Cougar Fiesta began in 1940 and was popular until the outbreak of WWII. It was revived in 1947 and ran for 13 years. It was an integral part of campus life and was attended by more than 100,00 people, including Humphrey Bogart. The event received national attention and was covered by Life magazine. Unfortunately, the event was cancelled in 1959 due to the fact that students spent more time on it than on school- work, and grades suffered. Cougar F iesta was back for another round in 1992, and many hoped it would once again become successful for several years to come. -Angela Snyder Above: L to R: Jim Hines, Chris Watkins, and Matt Scott sang together for the "Fiesta Opera House", a booth run by the Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity and the Alph Chi Omega sorority.
