It was another hot San Ignacio Fiesta this year, but that didn’t stop locals from making the 115 year of the Fiesta a success. The Fiesta kicked off with a Parade on Saturday, July 25 with the theme “Get in Gear Celebrating 115 Years.” The fun continued throughout the day with a horseshoe tournament, car cruise, and family in the town park. Three young ladies were inducted into the 2015 San Ignacio Royalty during the Fiesta Dance that night. The Fiesta concluded with a church mass and raffle drawing on Sunday, July 26.
