This year's Frida Fiesta featured a Frida look-alike contest with prizes, food catered by Hacienda del Rio, a live marimba performance and Frida birthday cake. "Frida was born and died in July so the fiesta is held annually in July" Moon explains. The idea for the fiesta came about when a gallery curator visiting the W!ld Moon Boutique bought several huipiles – traditional clothing commonly worn by Frida and many other women in Mexico and Central America – for a Frida-themed party. Moon loved the idea, especially with Kahlo being an icon in her shop since it first opened. So she decided to honor Frida with her own fiesta in the historic Old Town Patio Market. Moon brings a personal touch to the celebration that makes it feel like a gathering of long time friends.
