It is that time of year again in San Antonio when family’s come together to enjoy great Food, Fun & Festivities.
Fiesta has always been a big event in San Antonio which keeps getting bigger and better every year.
Fiesta believe it or not actually started in 1891 as a lavish flower parade to honor the heroes of the Alamo and the victorious Battle of San Jacinto, which won Texas’ independence from Mexico on April 21, 1836. The event was so successful that everyone decided to hold the Battle of Flowers Parade every year – and Fiesta was born. It grew into eleven days of over a hundred events, and half of Fiesta’s events are FREE.
Some of the great events include The Oyster Bake which is held at the St. Marys University Campus, and NIOSA, which stands for a Night In Old San Antonio is held at the La Villita located Downtown. For great food and Live music Market Square is available almost every night fiesta is going on.
San Antonio Fiesta is also famous for our Friday Battle of the Flowers Parade in which most businesses across the city are closed and followed by the Saturday Night Flambeau Parade, both of which are very fun & exciting.
The carnival that was once held downtown near the Market square was moved 3 years ago to the Alamodome Parking Lot.
Whether your looking for Rides, Food, Music, Arts & Crafts or a good old fashioned good time fiesta San Antonio has everything the whole family will love. I guarantee it from my experience.
What another great reason to relocate here to San Antonio!
