Hundreds gathered for the CHiP’s-inspired bash, including local celebrity talent and performers such as Carrot Top, Baywatch beauty Angelica Bridges and the cast of FANTASY, Defending The Caveman’s Paul Perroni, members from Thunder From Down Under, Sandra Benten and Lori Legacy from Menopause The Musical, comedian magician Murray Sawchuck and illusionist Jonathan Silver. The entertainers all walked the red carpet donning a traditional sombrero before heading inside to enjoy the fiesta.

In the midst of the excitement Estrada, Bridges and KVBC entertainment reporter Alicia Jacobs crowned Miss T&T Hot Tamale, Jennifer Affrot. Affrot was one of 11 contestants to compete in the all-out battle of brains, beauty and brawn to win the coveted title, a one-year modeling contract with T&T and Hennessey Black and a $5,000 cash. Her runner up, Rashel Razza took home a $500 cash prize.

The fiesta continued well into the night with live human rooster fighting competitions, a mischievous photo booth contest, a live mariachi band and resident DJ Ernan spinning the hottest beats. Partygoers enjoyed the second-annual fiesta calling it “the best on the Strip.” Owners Michael Frey and Craig Gilbert were enthusiastic about the turn out and are already planning next year’s event.
