It's Fiesta Time in San Antonio!

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

Every April, San Antonio hosts the world's biggest block Party - Fiesta San Antonio!  

Since 1891, when the local gentry decided they needed a parade to honor the heroes of the Alamo and The Battle of San Jacinto, which won Texas' Independence from Mexico.  They decorated their carraiges and threw flowers at each other as they passed.  The Battle Of Flowers Parade was born and quickly became the cornerstone of Fiesta events. 

 Original Battle of Flowers Carriage

Running now through April 26th, there are numerous events to attend, daily parades to see, including the Night parades  - River Parade and the Fiesta Flambeau, and a Mariachi festival!

 

San Antonio is a lively city on the rise.  It's a great place to visit, and even greater place to live.  Come for a weekend or a lifetime.

Sounds like I missed the fun in San Antiono. How about in early June? Fun events? I will be traveling there then.

Friday's forecast looks ominous for the Battle of Flowers parade.  It has been rained on so many times, maybe we should rename it The Rain Parade.
