The DeLuna Coronation Ball and Breakfast is an event of the annual Fiesta of Five Flags celebration where a member of the Fiesta organization is crowned "DeLuna" in a gala coronation and sponsors' ball. The pageantry of the evening includes a procession by the Children of the Court who will accompany DeLuna and his Queen to their throne.

Fiesta sponsors and Court family members observe as Knights and Princesses pay homage to DeLuna and his Queen. Special guests include many former DeLunas and Queens, as well as dignitaries from the Springtime Tallahassee Festival, the Hernando De Soto Heritage Festival in Bradenton and the Billy Bowlegs Festival in Fort Walton Beach. In addition, local dignitaries are in attendance to help celebrate the event.

The 2009 event will take place at the Pensacola Civic Center on June 12, starting at 7 p.m.

After the Coronation pageant, a special breakfast is served to honored guests of the ball, sponsored by the Andrews Institute Executive Physical Program.
