2014 Fiesta Days ends with music, Memorial Day remembrance

By From page A4 | May 28, 2014

VACAVILLE — Fiesta Days wrapped up its annual run Monday with music, fun and food.

Warm temperatures didn’t keep people away from the festivities.

Carnival rides beckoned children of all ages. A bevy of bands provided music. Community members came out to showcase their  skills eating onions and peppers and growing whiskers.

A Memorial Day service took place Monday morning to honor those who lost their lives fighting on foreign soil for our nation’s freedom. The day continued with music, Zumba, U-Jam and Ballet Folklorico performances.

Fiesta Days began in July 1957. Its original name was Western Fiesta since it featured square dancing and rodeo. A barbecue took place the second day.

This year’s Fiesta Days general chairman was Ralph Berumen.
