Transcript GHOST TOWN One of the biggest treats for Frontier Fiesta visitors were the realistic props. Various organizations put in time and effort to recreate the old west. IS THIS THE PLACE? Frontier Fiesta took place at the field just across from the Moody Towers. Photo hy Pi TA UH organizations and volunteers make Frontier Fiesta 2000 an event to remember Traditions can be found on every university campus around the world. These traditions bring students together as they share an experience that is unique to their school. At Texas A&M there is the Aggie Bonfire. At Texas Tech University there is Carol of Lights. Even the University of Houston has a tradition that seems to blow them all away. Frontier Fiesta is that tradition which has been going on since the 1950s. This year's Frontier Fiesta took place on the Frontier Fiesta Field at Calhoun Road and University Drive.

Frontier Fiesta took place on April 12 to April 15. In these four days students and visitors to the Frontier Fiesta had a field day. To turn the Fiesta Field into the old west, student organizations worked around the clock to build false building fronts, set up booths and tents. Organizations designed and built their model fronts and then members practiced for weeks on skits that were performed outside the fronts. Some organizations prefer to sing to Fiesta-goers with old western tunes. Others dressed up as saloon girls and did a little dance routine. Costumes are a huge part of the Frontier Fiesta. There are people dressed as cowboys, saloon girls, outlaws, etc. It's a real treat for the children who visit the festival. Speaking of children, Frontier Fiesta offers a Little Wrangler Day in which special activities are set up for children who attend the festival. It's a time for student organizations to give some of their time to little cougars. The Student Program Board also got in on all the fun by sponsoring live music during • Continued on page I 86 ENTER THE COUGAR Fiesta goers must enter through a very frightening cougar gate.
