2016 Fiesta Day

What a success! Canyon Lake’s 43rd annual Fiesta Day was enjoyed by more than 6,000 spectators on May 28, 2016. Thousands lined the streets to watch and cheer during the traditional parade that included special guests such as Temescal Canyon High School Jazz Band, Lake Elsinore Storm’s Thunder, California Military Institute as well as many community clubs, businesses, and groups. The event followed the parade and included entertainment and activities that were tailored towards this year’s theme, ‘Flashback Fiesta’ a tribute to the 50s, 60s, and 70s.
