La Reigna de la Fiesta contestants sit in the dressing room before they take the floor to see who won. Every year, there is a King and Queen of the local fiestas in Santa Fe which take place in September I think. It's an odd tradition. One that celebrates a rich and very important part of New Mexico, but one that also has roots in the conquest of the new world, which raises a lot of issues. Nonetheless, the contestants were all beautiful.
