SAN ANTONIO — San Antonio Fiesta began in 1891 to honor the memory of the heroes of the Alamo and the Battle of San Jacinto. Today is a celebration of the city’s diverse culture and rich history, and it has become one of the nation’s top festivals.
Taking place over eleven days, Fiesta San Antonio is an annual celebration. This town celebrates its rich heritage through parades, local festivals and live entertainment. Commemorative Medals are collected to show our pride in San Antonio, and it is now the city’s largest gathering.
The event is to take off Thursday, Mar. 31, – Sunday, Apr. 10, and will include events such as the Texas Cavaliers River Parade, which is Monday, Apr. 4, The Battle of Flowers parade is on Friday, Apr. 8, and the Fiesta Flambeau Parade Saturday, Apr. 9. NIOSA (A Night in Old San Antonio) and dates for the Fiesta Carnival will soon be announced.
FIESTA FASHION WEAR
The definite guide on fashion at Fiesta is to wear bright, vibrant colors which will commemorate San Antonio’s heritage. Flower crowns and flowing dresses always seem to be the best way to go for women and men embroidered Mexican shirts suit best which you can find at any Spanish heritage boutique, especially in the market square area (El Mercado).
