Photo by Lauren Wilson Talk to me Becky Pangman listens intently to what Tony Harris and Blake Austin have to say. The skits were one of the most entertaining part of the Frontier Fiesta 'experience. Photo by Lauren Wilson Careful with that saw! Students work together in the construction phase of Frontier Fiesta. While some students grew tired of the hard work, others enjoyed the process and took great pride in their efforts. Photo by Pin Lim Begun in 1941 as a means of attracting high school students to the University, and once billed by Life Magazine as "the greatest college show on Earth," Frontier Fiesta was one of the most exciting aspects of life at UH. The 2002 Frontier Fiesta, held on the grounds of Robertson Stadium, was no exception as thousands of UH students, alumni, and faculty, as well as members of the Houston community packed into "Fiesta City" March 21-23. The show is primarily put on by the UH Greek community, which begins preparing for the event in December. The show features Broadway-style variety shows, free concerts, and a cook-off that features some of the worlds best Chicken, Brisket, and Sausage. The fraternities and sororities compete against each other in the design and construction of "Fiesta City," which usually goes up two weeks before the show opens. In 2002, the best front award went to Sigma Phi Epsilon and Delta Zeta. The most spirited award went to Alpha Chi Omega and Sigma Chi. The best overall variety show award was given to Phi Kappa Theta and Zeta Tau Alpha, who did their show based on James Bond and Austin Powers. Sig-Ep and Delta Zeta finished second with their show based on the board game "Clue." But really, sequing? One of the most pleasant surprises about the 2002 Frontier Lindsey Carroll and Jade Daniels check out a dress in their rendition of "Clue", ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^The shows required a great deal of preparation, but were always a big success with the audience. Fiesta was the fact that, for the first time in recent memory, nice pnoto by Lauren Wilson weather accompanied the event. "It rains every year at Frontier Fiesta, but this year it was actually dry," said Lauren Wilson, a junior marketing major and member of the Delta Zeta sorority. The theme of the 2002 show was "Beyond All Borders," and this was reflected in the many concerns which featured Tejano, Country, and R & B performers. "My favorite concert was Roger Creager s performance. The crowd and the music made it really easy to get into the Frontier Fiesta spirit." said Wilson. Story by Matthew E.
