The fiesta commemorates the feast of St. Michael the Archangel.

San Miguel hosted its annual Fiestas this past weekend at the church in Socorro. Among the new items and events added to this year's fiesta included a double elimination horseshoe tournament, funnel cakes, and several new music groups including an Irish band, Duke City Ceili. Serving as this year's Senior King and Queen were Bill and Lorella Chavez.

The three-day event was filled with music, traditional Mexican food as well as Indian tacos and barbeque, children's games, a silent auction and a white elephant sale.
