Leslie’s history of the Mexican toga party: It all started 30 years ago at The Blasing Farm outside of Hondo, Texas. When I was a junior in high school and wanted to have a party after our high school junior/senior play performance of M*A*S*H* (I was Hot Lips!)
At this Toga Party I wanted to serve Mexican food, so I decided to call it a Mexican Toga Party. Around this same time, the steady entourage of friends that were always at our farm, decided to have certain games with staunch competion – horseshoes was a mainstay, strobe light tennis, tetherball and other games were added through the years. It is only fitting that these games, food and fun have lasted througout the years and traveling with me all the way down here to the Island. The experience is priceless!! Make sure you join in as an Olympian or on the sidelines in your Toga cheering on your favorite athletes into the history books for the 33rd year celebration!
