SAN ANTONIO — The Majestic Theatre was a worthy venue for an evening filled with extravagant and beautiful dresses and trains.

Duchesses from San Antonio and the surrounding area were adorned with jewels, beads and handmade tassels as they walked the stage. Her Gracious Majesty, the Queen of the Order of the Alamo received her crown in one of Fiesta's oldest traditions, completing an evening in which the entire court got to show off their beautiful dresses.
