Where can I get a KENS 5 Fiesta medal?

KENS 5 is giving away FREE Fiesta medals again this year! The 2017 medal depicts a microphone with a colorful cascarón on top!

The big question we're always asked is: "WHERE can I get a KENS 5 medal?"

Throughout Fiesta, we will update this page with the latest list of places you can encounter a KENS 5 anchor, reporter or digital journalist.

We will have a limited number of KENS 5 medals to hand out at each event. When they're gone, they're gone!
