Every year in April, millions of people from various parts of the state, country, and even the world will visit San Antonio, Texas to take part in Fiesta. If you’ve never heard of Fiesta, you may not be familiar with the traditions of San Antonio! Not to worry – we will fill you in!
What is Fiesta?
Fiesta is a celebration that takes place all over various parts of San Antonio for a period of 10 days. Whether you want to hit up the streets of downtown or enjoy a festival on the northside, there is something going on everywhere you look! You’ll see women decked out in bright flower crowns and Mexican dresses, men typically wear large over-the-top hats, and everyone loves to show off their sashes filled with medals they’ve been collecting.
While every Fiesta event offers a different atmosphere, most of them will include alcohol, food, and live music. There’s no way to describe Fiesta. It is something everyone must experience at least once in their lives. You may even become addicted to the celebration and make a tradition out of it!
How Did Fiesta Begin in San Antonio?
Back in 1891, the very first Fiesta kicked off as just a parade to honor the men who fought in the Alamo and Battle of San Jacinto. We still honor this tradition and call it the Battle of Flowers Parade – which is the largest parade in Fiesta. This is also the only parade in the nation to be planned and directed solely by women. It is also the second-largest parade, coming behind the Tournament of Roses Parade.
