DAYS OF SPAIN FIESTA
- St. Augustine's Day of Spain Fiesta is highlighted in this film. The narrator traces the founding of St. Augustine, the establishment of Castillo de San Marcos and the construction of the city. Larry Moore of the St. Augustine Jaycees comments on the Fiesta. Mayor Fred Brancoff and St. Augustine's "Royal Family" open the Fiesta with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Musicians perform and children compete for prizes at contest booths. A band of "gypsy dancers" performs and a mock battle between "French invaders" and "Spanish soldiers" ensues on a small stage for a few moments before the French are repelled. Produced by WFSU-TV.
