Tejeda brings history to life at annual event

The San Antonio murky weather didn’t stop thousands of Tejeda Middle School community members from attending the school’s History Faire & Culture Fest on April 1.  A variety of cultures converged at the top of the school's aptly named, "History Hill," featuring performers, historical reenactments and great food.

Tejeda community members learned about the Buffalo Soldiers, watched a medieval tournament, interacted with Roman soldiers, and listened to the stories of submarine voyages and the Wild West. Other attractions included, the Viking House, German Sunday Haus, Veteran's Gazebo, Olive Orchard, WWII Nimitz Museum, Native American Culture Booth and more.

Some students may have found a new passion for dance, as they watched Irish dancers, Copuria Brazilian dancers and Native American dancers perform on stage. Families left with plenty of great jewelry and collectibles sold by local vendors. The Tejeda family is already looking forward to next year's history faire and culture fest.
