Chronicling Cornyation – Fiesta's Most Outrageous 'Party With A Purpose'
Created in 1951 by members of San Antonio's theater community to satirize traditional, socially exclusive Fiesta events, Cornyation is a flamboyant, adult-themed parody of local and national politics and culture.
The outrageous celebration is one of Texas' longest-running, and has raised more than $2 million for HIV-AIDS research since 1990.
