Life’s an adventure, and so was the 117th Annual San Ignacio Fiesta July 29-30. The celebration kicked off with the parade, over 20 floats that embodied the theme ‘Life’s an Adventure’. The Fiesta continued through the day with live music by It’s Jose at Shoshone Park. People filled the venue to enjoy food, drinks, bouncy house, face painting, volleyball, games, watermelon contest and the annual horseshoe contest. La Familia Sandaval played live music all night at the Sky Ute Casino Resort, where they crowned the San Ignacio Royalty who raised $12,700 in funds for next year’s San Ignacio events and the St. Ignatius Church of Ignacio.
