This year’s parade is dedicated in memory of Charter member,

Gloria ArguijoOrtiz,

wife of Past President Pete Ortiz, Jr. As a charter member, she spent almost 30 years giving her support and encouragement to the Fiesta Flambeau Parade Association. During the humble beginnings of Flambeau, Gloria was a respected team leader; whether it was painting signs, counting shirts or handling refreshments she was always smiling. Many of the Flambeau members worked at Kelly AFB, Gloria was a proud civil servant and encouraged many of the members to recruit fellow civil servants to volunteer at the parade. As a first-lady of Flambeau, she supported her husband many years as he served on the Fiesta Flambeau Parade Executive Board. We will be forever grateful for all the countless hours she spent helping to build our legacy.

Fiesta Flambeau® Parade President’s Greeting Bonnie Carrisal

Welcome to the 71st Annual Fiesta Flambeau® Parade, the premier event of Fiesta® and named “Best Parade” by the International Festivals and Events Association in our budget category. We are extremely excited to celebrate “Reflections of Music Past” with our Grand Marshal, the iconic Chubby Checker who’s song “The Twist” was recently named in the top 100 greatest songs in Bill board magazine’s 60th anniversary edition. Music plays a big part in my personal life; there are special songs in my heart that remind me of special occasions such as my wedding day, the birth of my grandchildren and of course the Spurs championship games! I’ve been a proud member of this organization for almost 20 years and I am extremely humbled serving as president for a second year.

Military Coordinator’s Greeting

Jeffrey S. Buchanan

Fiesta is a celebration as unique as the city of San Antonio. The various events commemorate a rich heritage and courageous spirit. As a military, we seek to embody these same traits and values as we serve our nation, and we look forward to celebrating them with you during Fiesta 2019. This year, as always, the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard have selected some of the finest men and women serving in the San Antonio area as our Military Ambassadors to Fiesta. I believe I speak for all of us in uniform when I thank the city and its residents for their unwavering support of the military, our veterans and families. There’s a good reason that San Antonio is called “Military City USA.” We are grateful for all you do for us.

4 Reflections of Music Past

Since 1948, along the 2.6 mile parade route, the Fiesta Flambeau® Parade has illuminated the streets of beautiful downtown San Antonio, marching in front of the Alamo entertaining over 750,000 street spectators. For many families, the parade is a long standing tradition. With the efforts of a dedicated Executive Board, a hardworking membership and over 300 volunteers, we will continue creating illuminated memories and strengthen our legacy as the largest illuminated parade in the nation. “Let’s Go Crazy” on April 27, 2019 , bring your bling, lighted beads, grab your confetti sticks come show us your Fiesta® spirit and get ready to “TWIST” with us! Viva Flambeau®! Bonnie Carrisal President

As in years past, our military will help continue the proud Fiesta tradition of hosting festivities and providing ceremonial units at many of the lively Fiesta events. We hope you will come out to these events, meet your neighbors who serve, and learn more about the military’s past and present contributions to this city and the nation. On behalf of the more than 140,000 active duty, government civilian, veterans, and military family members who make San Antonio home, we look forward to celebrating with you. VIVA FIESTA! Jeffrey S. Buchanan Lieutenant General, U.S. Army Commanding General, U.S. Army North and Senior Army Commander, Fort Sam Houston and Camp Bullis

It is with steadfast honor and devotion that I wish the Fiesta Flambeau® an outstanding 2019 Parade. Banning together this Summer brought the sister Parades even closer and more united as we told our story to the leadership of San Antonio. Not only did we make new friends but we began to really appreciate each other and the camaraderie that grew from the core values and hard work that goes with producing a successful Parade. Not only have we been sharing invaluable ideas making each other stronger and more confident, but we have realized what it is to strengthen a unified front so that our events will forever impact San Antonio and its history.

Fiesta Flambeau Parade 2019 ®


Chubby Checker is an entertainment industry icon best known for popularizing The Twist, the number one song of all time… and the only song to hit the number one position twice in two different years. The Twist is the first song in history to be number one for over 50 years. It will be the number one song until 2065 when Billboard Magazine nominates another song for that honor. Chubby also invented and popularized many other dances, including the fly, the pony, the shake and the hucklebuck. All of them exist in some form today on the dance floor, but it’s the legacy of The Twist

that endures and secures Chubby’s place in history. In October of 2018, Chubby was honored when he won the Casino Entertainer of the Year award. Chubby continues to tour around the world and make people happy. Seeing him in concert you would think that doing The Twist is the magic potion for the fountain of youth. He is an energetic, articulate entertainer. His concerts are filled with people of all generations. He is current…he is amazing and he explodes on stage getting everyone involved.
