RSF Historical Society readies for Fandango Party

RANCHO SANTA FE — Rancho Days is officially here with plenty of celebratory items on the schedule.

While every event offers its own special flair, the RSF Historical Society is serving up festive fun at its Fandango soirée Oct. 11.

The venue will be held at the historic La Flecha House, which means guests have access to see the museum and be part of the rich, La Flecha history.

“Fandango is our contribution to the Rancho Days Event held every year around this time in October,” said Sharon Alix, administrator at the RSF Historical Society.

Alix described their event as a finale for Rancho Days.

She went on to say how their event will have live music from the Mariachi Divinas.

“They are a female mariachi band from the San Diego area and they met in college,”Alix said. “And they do a beautiful job and they dress divine.”

While the entertainment is in full swing, Guillermo’s Tacos will be offering the savories at the taco bar.

“He provides three different types of tacos, beans and rice and it’s made right here on the premises, so it’s all fresh,” said Alix, adding how one margarita or a glass of sangria is part of the ticket price.

Ticket prices are $30 for RSF Historical Society members and $35 for nonmembers.

The event kicks off at 4:30 p.m. and continues until 8 p.m. Alix describes it as an “open house” affair. Typically, they have 50 to 80 guests throughout the day.

For those who stay until the later hours, they can watch the starlit sky. “It will be lovely,” she said.

For the RSF Historical Society, they want all who take part in Fandango to walk away feeling happy.

“We want everyone to have a good time with the people they have met,” she said. “We want it to be a day that everyone remembers.”
