Fiesta Medal Mania

Colorful medals are a hallmark of San Antonio’s Fiesta®. Said to have began with King Antonio XLIX in 1971, Fiesta® medals trace back even earlier to special coins given out at events. Today, nearly every organization involved with Fiesta® issues its own unique creation. Collecting as many medals as possible each year has become a playful tradition all its own. This year, when someone asks "who’s got the most Fiesta® medals?" ITC may well be at the top of the list! (Full story)
