Fiesta in San Antonio is kind of a big deal. Parades, parties, live music, sports, exhibits and more all come together over 10 days in the springtime when San Antonio residents get together and celebrate. The history of Fiesta is rich and storied and dates all the way back to 1891, when it was originally called the Battle of the Flowers. A parade was formed when a group of citizens in the area wanted to honor the heroes of the Alamo and Battle of San Jacinto with a Battle of Flowers, according to the Fiesta website, and parade participants pelted each other with flowers.
More than 100 years later, Fiesta is bigger and better than ever in San Antonio. Similar to Mardi Grad in New Orleans, Fiesta is a multi-day party that celebrates the city’s unique heritage and culture. The celebration involves Fiesta royalty, carnival rides and jubilant gatherings. Fiesta San Antonio is family friendly and a great space to kick up your heels and have a little fun, Texas-style!
