2014 El Presidente Dennis Rickard
As we mentioned before, this year's Fiesta celebration is special because our El Presidente is Dennis Rickard, who is the son of
the 1949 El Presidente, John T. Rickard. The trivia question we asked on Saturday was, what are three current Old-Spanish Days traditions that
started in 1949? Edhat subscribers guessed everything from the El Desfile Historico Parade to the El Mercado.
