Battle of Flowers… Where Fiesta Began!

Every April San Antonio  hosts a celebration called Battle of the Flowers. This parade honors the soldiers who have died in the Battle of the Alamo and celebrates the victory of San Jacinto. ” I go to the parade every  year because I like to party and see the big colorful floats”- Gabby Pena (8). “Rockin’ on the Waters” is this year’s theme for the floats that pass through the San Antonio River Walk. This week is full of carnivals, cold drinks, hot foods, and colorful hats!  “My favorite part of fiesta week is going to the parades and looking at the really cool floats”- Zachary Pastor (8). What are you looking forward to; the parade, the float designs, or even the crowning of the King and Queen?
