EL PASO, Texas – The Sun Bowl Association (SBA) has announced on Tuesday, Nov. 16 that a native of El Paso will be the 2021 Grand Marshal for the 85th Annual Glasheen, Valles & Inderman Injury Lawyers Sun Bowl Parade, which will be held on Thanksgiving morning, November 25 at 10 a.m. (MT) in El Paso, Texas.

Fabiola Salayandia recently won $25,000 on a Spanish-language reality design show on the HGTV network called “Hogar Star.” She will eventually host her own show, which is still in development, and is scheduled to air next year.

“I’m honored and blessed by God to be in the career that I love,” said Salayandia. “I want to accomplish great goals in life, which is to add my own special mark in our beautiful city at an international level and devote my life to my wonderful family. Thank you El Paso! Let’s succeed and create history together.”

According to, where you can see Salayandia’s work, she is ‘an El Paso, Texas-based interior designer dedicated to designing high-end residential and commercial spaces strongly infused with energy, warmth, and luxury with over 13 years of experience.’

“We are thankful to have found someone who is excited to stay here in El Paso and be a part of our wonderful Thanksgiving tradition,” said SBA Executive Director Bernie Olivas. “We hope everyone shows up to honor Fabiola as she leads the parade of awesome floats and entries down Montana Avenue.”

Salayandia wanted to be a part of the Spanish-speaking Reality TV show “Hogar de HGTV” to show off her skill, imagination and innovation but also wanted to be challenged along the way.

“We know many people in the building and design world will recognize her but we also wanted to showcase another amazing and talented person who is from and currently in El Paso,” said Special Events Coordinator Joe Daubach. “We hope this helps her and we want everyone to know that there are so many talented designers, artists, musicians, athletes and so much more in the Borderland.”

This year marks the 85th edition of the annual parade, which is held on Montana Ave. from Ochoa to Copia and will be televised on KTSM News Channel 9 once again.

Past Grand Marshals include Aaron and Alivn Jones who played in the NFL and have the A&A All the Way Foundation (2020), WWII Veterans (2017), former W.B.A. light middleweight Boxing Champion Austin “No Doubt” Trout (2013), legendary UTEP men’s basketball player Nolan Richardson (2014), former UTEP men’s basketball coach Don Haskins, former PGA player Lee Trevino and the 1966 NCAA Champion-UTEP men’s basketball team (2015).

The Sun Bowl parade started its humble beginnings on New Year’s Day in 1936 and has stood the test of time as an annual tradition here in El Paso. The Sun Bowl Association made the switch to a Thanksgiving Day celebration in 1978 and has been the tradition since.

The Sun Bowl Association is a volunteer based nonprofit 501©(3) organization. The Sun Bowl Association, with the help of over 700 volunteers, promotes and serves the El Paso community and features a year-round schedule of events, culminating with the Annual Tony the Tiger® Sun Bowl football game.

The Sun Bowl Association was founded in 1935 with a threefold purpose: 1) to present a football attraction of national importance, 2) to promote El Paso and the Southwest and 3) to generate tourist income for the area. On Oct. 18, 1934, at a meeting of the El Paso Kiwanis Club, Dr. Brice Schuller suggested that the club sponsor a football game on New Year’s Day, matching an El Paso High School All-Star Team against a worthy opponent. The motion was passed unanimously. It was decided to ask for public suggestions as to the name of this annual game, and the name “Sun Bowl” was submitted by Dr. C.M. Hendricks, who became the first president of the Sun Bowl Association.
