For NIOSA Fortune Telling Booth volunteers! 

This is where I train folks to read cards that we use at the booth at NIOSA, Night In Old San Antonio. The cards were created by Floy Fontaine Jordan, when she was 18 years old, for the first Fortune Telling Booth that she created for the 1st Fiesta in 1920.  Floy's mother and aunt coordinated the Fiestas to support the San Antonio Conservation Society.  Which supports preservation of historic properties, parks, waterways, traditions and the intangible heritage of this multicultural city and its neighboring counties through education, advocacy, grants, preservation projects and programs.

Although food and beverages are provided, volunteers are invited to bring a cultural dish to share at this Niosita.  Also, your Floy Fontain Jordan Tarot cards! If you don't have a deck, bring a plain deck of playing cards.  Some folks get the oversized ones!  

The Fortune Telling Booth, chaired by Patrice Villastrigo, is in Mission Trail, one of 15 culturally themed areas that comprise NIOSA.  In 2018: NIOSA is on April 24-27.  Hours: 5:30PM – 10:30PM  At La Villita

Shift times: 5:30 – 8 and 8 – 10:30
