Each April, more than 3 million people participate in the 11-day celebration of over 100 events and three parades honoring the heroes of the Alamo and Battle of San Jacinto, as well as the diverse culture of San Antonio.
Here are a few Fiesta highlights:
· The Battle of the Flowers Parade is considered the founding event of Fiesta San Antonio and draws hundreds of thousands of celebrants to downtown streets.
· A Night in Old San Antonio is just steps away from the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. Walk the streets of La Villita Historic Arts Village to enjoy more than 240 decorated food and drink booths and more than a dozen nonstop entertainment stages representing the diverse cultures and customs of the city in 15 heritage-themed areas.
· The Texas Cavaliers River Parade draws the community and visitors along the River Walk to view over 40 decorated river boats float down the San Antonio River.
· Fiesta Oyster Bake serves more than 100,000 oysters either baked or fried, in addition to the a variety of tasty options at over 50 food and beverage booths. A children’s activity area as well as a fireworks finale make this event a perennial Fiesta San Antonio favorite.
· Fiesta Flambeau Night Parade is one of the largest illuminated parades in the United States traveling over 2 miles through downtown San Antonio.
· A Taste of New Orleans fills three days with the tastes and sounds of the Crescent City. Listen to Dixieland, Smooth Jazz and while enjoying Creole and Cajun dishes. Festivities are held in the historic Sunken Gardens Theater of Brackenridge Park.
