Spirit of Fiesta Auditions

Watch Hopefuls Vie for the 2015 Spirit Honors

Nothing says “viva la” quite like the rhythmic tap and snap of Fiesta’s flamenco dancers — for five August days, they stir the musical soul of the city like no one else. Before the good times begin, though, the festival organizers must select this year’s Spirits, and the public is invited to watch. The upcoming 2015 Spirit and Junior Spirit of Fiesta auditions will take place on Saturday, April 18, at noon, in the La Cumbre Junior High School auditorium (2255 Modoc Rd.). Tickets are $25 and include admittance to the post-audition reception at historic El Paseo Restaurant from 2-5 p.m., where attendants can eat, drink, and mingle with the newly anointed Spirits and audition participants to the tune of live music. For tickets and information, visit or drop by the Old Spanish Days Fiesta office in the Carriage Museum at 129 Castillo Street.
