2019 Poster and Pin Unveiled Features classic scenes from 95 year old festival

Posted May 30, 2019

The Fiesta pin depicts one of the most iconic images of Fiesta, the Fiesta dancers. “For the pin design I knew I wanted to use the dancing couple from many of our past Fiesta posters,” said Carroll. “It’s an image that is well-known in our community, and, in addition to the parade, it’s the other image that everyone recognizes and can connect with.” 
La Presidenta Carroll concluded “I hope both the poster and pin are images that resonate as quintessentially Fiesta and stir happy memories.” 
The original image for the Fiesta poster was created by La Presidenta Carroll’s lifelong friend, Victor Sigismondi, a local artist and graphic designer, OSD board member Debbie Oquist assisted with its completion, while Steve Lipman at Pincrafters assisted with the pin design.
