SAN ANTONIO – The Alamo City’s favorite time of the year has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, but the Fiesta San Antonio Commission is still working to provide some color during a bleak time.
- 10-day-long event usually concludes with contest
- Community encouraged to post photos of medals during Facebook live
The annual 10-day-long event usually concludes with Pin Pandemonium, a contest that gives the person with the most Fiesta medals bragging rights for the year.
Because physical events have been pushed to November, organizers are instead encouraging the community to post their favorite photos of past Pin Pandemoniums and share photos of their favorite Fiesta 2020 medals with the hashtag #AtHomeFiesta during a Facebook live from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday.
People will also be able to purchase 2020 Fiesta medals during the virtual event on the Fiesta website, and proceeds will continue to support local nonprofits.
