Camie Barnwell has written about Fiesta for nearly 20 years and says her unflagging interest comes from a love of most all things Spanish. To keep things fresh, she’s dug for the elusive and the unusual: Why is Fiesta no longer celebrated under the full August moon? Who was Jose Manero? Where, oh where, is the best margarita in town? And of course the memorable “Fiestamama” piece with its eight-Camie Photoshop image in The Indy‘s 2013 edition. This issue, she brings us stories of Fiesta romance through the decades — a tribute from a writer who grabs the heart of every story she tells.
