Fiesta del Pacifico is one of several festivals, held annually
in various communities in California, which celebrate the "Old Spanish Days"
of the state. This particular festival is held in San Diego for twelve days
each summer and features a play on the history of the area with a cast of
over 1,000, a parade, and street dances. In this work, Roger Nixon captures
the excitement and Spanish flavor of this festival.
