It was a chance for South to meet West - for music aficionados to honor traditional European music and simultaneously honor South America's influence on that music. It was a chance for players of classical strings and horns to appreciate the earthy, guttural sounds of the steel drum. A hybrid audience of classical music patrons and samba enthusiasts kept the beat as local samba groups performed during an afternoon fiesta yesterday at the Sheraton Society Hill Hotel. The Latin American-style banquet was a benefit for the Philadelphia Youth Orchestra, to raise money for a forthcoming South American tour.

When it was introduced 70 years ago, Fiesta ware was a triumph of art deco styling. Simple lines and bright colors made the tableware a popular collectible, particularly after it was discontinued by its manufacturer in 1973. That allure was diminished when Henry Laughlin Co. reissued Fiesta in 1986. But original pieces can still bring strong prices, as suggested by the presale estimates for some of the 2,000 pieces to be offered at a Fiesta ware auction today and tomorrow. The single-owner collection will be sold at Alderfer Auction Center, 501 Fairgrounds Rd., Hatfield, by Indiana-based Strawser Auctions.

Gerardo Hernandez, 9, tightens the strap on his sombrero - a little too much, perhaps - as he gets ready to perform yesterday at Penn's Landing. With him are Juvenal Tapia, 8, and Juan Tapia, 12. The fiesta involved music, dancing, food and a puppet show. It was a celebration of Mexico's independence from Spain, which came on Sept. 16, 1810.

It was the music by Los Conquistadores on Saturday that turned an all- American picnic in Nottingham Park into a traditional Mexican fiesta. The shouts and sounds of the Mexican band members echoed throughout the park during the all-day event in southern Chester County where Kaolin Mushroom Farms, the county's largest mushroom company, celebrated Family Day for its nearly 500 employees. The event brought Kaolin's mostly Mexican mushroom workers together with the company's Italian owners, or patrones, for the company picnic.

It was difficult to just sit and watch. Princesses atop floats and baton twirlers swinging to booming salsa seemed, as if by magic, to compel bysitters to get up and bounce. Few were unmoved by Bristol's annual Puerto Rican Day Parade. "I love it," said Bath Street resident Dorothy Pople, 71 and smiling in the afternoon sun and breeze. "It makes you want to dance. " "You have to come out and participate once it starts," Carol Wells said. "You cannot rest in the house.

Leave it to Ben Franklin to invent something new for Independence Day celebrations 232 years onward.

Actually, it is a life-imitates-art scene, since it will actually be Ralph Archbold, Philadelphia's premiere Franklin impersonator, marrying his fianc?e, Linda Wilde, who often portrays Ross, thought to be the seamstress for the first American flag. They fell in love during their Revolutionary reenactments and decided to have their nuptials publicly during Sunoco Welcome America!

The Bowl Championship Series will be replaced by the College Football Playoff in 2014, BCS conference commissioners said Tuesday. The Rose, Sugar, and Orange Bowls will be joined by the Fiesta, Cotton, and Chick-fil-A Bowls in a six-bowl semifinal rotation, according to ESPN. James Madison gave men's basketball coach Matt Brady a four-year contract extension through 2016-17. Brady, who is from Haddon Heights, guided the Dukes to a 21-15 record, their first Colonial Athletic Association tournament title in 19 years, and their first NCAA tournament bid in the same span.

Ford is getting a lot of mileage out of its Fiesta. For the last year, the Detroit automaker has been rolling out the 2014 update of its popular subcompact in dribs and drabs: starting with its 38 m.p.g. S last summer, followed by its street-legal rally-crosser - the 35 m.p.g. ST, last fall - and, most recently, a 45 m.p.g. 1-liter SFE that's been on sale since December but was made available to the media only in March. To put the 1-liter in context, it is so compact that a Ford engineer packed the engine block in a carry-on suitcase and took it through TSA security without a hitch.

For years, Ford has been building pocket-rocket variations on its Fiesta subcompact for European consumption. Now, finally, in the 2014 model year, North Americans are allowed to buy one, too. It's called the Fiesta ST, and it is a hoot. In fact, I can't remember having this much fun in a car that starts well under $22,000. The ST is essentially a garden variety Fiesta that received a large injection of anabolic steroids in its rear fascia. As a result, it is more muscular and athletic than its sensible-shoe sisters, and advertises that fact with sporty styling cues.

Music blared at the edge of the Delaware on Saturday as thousands of people swayed and salsa'ed during the 32d annual Hispanic Fiesta at Penn's Landing. There were foods and paraphernalia galore for sale, from arepa flatbreads to empanadas and shorts emblazoned with Puerto Rican flags. Music emanated from the waterfront stage as people sipped piña coladas from pineapples and sucked down limber de cocos - a kind of coconut popsicle - to try to stay cool in the heat. Concilio, the nonprofit council of Spanish-speaking organizations that organized the event, said it was expecting 30,000 people to attend the two-day celebration, with a popular Hispanic music act set to perform each night: Tony Tun Tun on Saturday and Tony Vega on Sunday.

De'Anthony Thomas returned the opening kickoff 94 yards for the first of his two touchdowns, Marcus Mariota accounted for three scores, and No. 5 Oregon raced past No. 7 Kansas State, 35-17, at the Fiesta Bowl on Thursday night in Glendale, Ariz. Oregon (12-1) jumped out to a 15-0 lead behind Thomas' opening return and 23-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter. Kansas State (11-2) tried to bull its way behind Heisman Trophy finalist Collin Klein, only to get overwhelmed by the speedy Ducks, who got some help with an obscure one-point safety on a blocked extra-point kick.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Everything about Oregon is fast - including the lead it built in Thursday's Fiesta Bowl. The Ducks opened against Kansas State with a 94-yard kick return for a touchdown by De'Anthony Thomas, one of the most dynamic players in the country. It took 12 seconds. Then Chip Kelly went for a two-point conversion. Because when you're the Oregon coach, conventional thinking is not always the best way of thinking. That's one of the reasons the 49-year-old is so desired by NFL teams.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Chip Kelly apparently likes surprises. The Oregon coach said he will now talk to his agent, David Dunn, about NFL teams that might be interested in his services. After defeating Kansas State, 35-17, in the Fiesta Bowl Thursday night, with many thousands of Ducks fans standing at their seats in the University of Phoenix Stadium long after time expired to plead with him to stay in Eugene, Kelly stopped well short of reassuring them. But he also continued to insist that the NFL has really been the last thing on his mind.

One of the first questions Oregon coach Chip Kelly - perhaps the front-runner to take over as coach of the Eagles - was asked after arriving in Arizona for the Fiesta Bowl was about the possibility of coaching in the NFL. The are-you-going-to-the-NFL questions haven't let up in the five days since, and only figure to pick up after seven coaches were fired Monday. Deflection has been Kelly's defense since the rumors started and it was no different after all those NFL openings cropped up. "I've got a game to play," Kelly said during the Fiesta Bowl's media day Monday.

It's that season again - turkey time - though not for the reasons you might expect at El Rey near Rittenhouse Square. "Pavo con mole" - turkey with spicy-sweet mole sauce - is a traditional dish at several big Mexican events, the latest being the "Día de los Muertos. " For the creepy-fun of Day of the Dead festivities in early November, chef Dionicio Jimenez naturally chose a "black mole," which differs from the more common, chocolaty "poblano" variation in that it is more complex, more bittersweet, more redolent of almonds and peanuts than sesame, and kissed with the smoke of tortilla ashes.
