2015 King Daniel Adam's Message


2015 kings daniel ltr


     It is with honor and pride that I serve as your 2015 Festa King. I am extremely fortunate to be a part of such an awesome community. I would like to thank Pedro & Therese Garces, my Uncle and Aunt, for giving me this opportunity to represent our great Portuguese community. I know you will have a successful Festa. I would like to thank my Dad, the belated Jose Maria Silva, and especially my Mom, Rosemarie Silva, for instilling the importance of Faith, Family, and Traditions, and supporting me every step of the way in this journey we call life. I wish to have half the strength my Mom has, raising three children by herself and doing an amazing job at that.

     This year as Festa King, I look forward to working with all the hard-working and dedicated volunteers who bring Festa together each year. From the different fundraisers to Festa weekend, the volunteers work non-stop to ensure our culture and traditions are celebrated each year. Festa 2015 will be the 105th Festa do Espirito Santo in San Diego. This could never have happened without the continuous hard work and support of our Portuguese community. It is because of them I am extremely proud, honored, and humbled to carry the crown, "coroa", in the 2015 Festa.

     To Ashley, the 2015 Festa Queen and my Godchild, I look forward watching you reign as the 105th Festa Queen. You are a beautiful and great person and can't wait to celebrate this year's festivities with you.

Serving as the 2015 Festa King will be an experience I will never forget.


God Bless,

Daniel Adam Silva
