What a sad day for the descendants of the Spanish/Mexican-speaking settlers of our region. Our Fiesta Queen was hijacked from her home at Our Lady of Sorrows. The Fiesta Queen es La Reina de Las Fiestas de Nuestra Señora de Dolores de Las Vegas Grandes. She didn’t pull the train into Las Vegas in the late 1870s, nor is she a firecracker. She represents the settlement of the Las Vegas Land Grant way before the Easterners brought their celebration to our community.
