This weekend, University of Houston students have yet another reason to celebrate their status as Cougars.

Frontier Fiesta returns March 25 - 27 in the parking lot of UH's Robertson Stadium with live music, carnival rides, cook-offs and Broadway-style student performances. This free event is produced by UH students and open to the Houston community.

A tradition since the 1940s, Frontier Fiesta was labeled "The Greatest College Show on Earth" by Life magazine. Since its inception, the western-themed festival showcases the talent and diversity that define Cougar culture.

Adding to the Texas flavor of the event is Fiesta City, a replica of a 19th century cow town that serves as home base for all Frontier Fiesta activities.

Highlights of Frontier Fiesta 2010 include:

  • Battle of the Bands - 7 p.m., March 25
  • Hip-Hop Night featuring Clipse - 7 p.m., March 26
  • Mark McKinney in concert - 10:30 p.m., March 27
