First started in 1891, Fiesta has grown into a massive celebration spanning 10 days, hundreds of performers and thousands of spectators. Promoting San Antonio's multicultural heritage, it's one of the biggest parties in Texas and by far the largest in the city. With over 100 events, it's a great time to visit the city. The Battle of Flowers Parade is synonymous with the festival, attracting a crowd of some 350,000, while the big Fiesta Flambeau Parade occurs on the second Saturday. Along with loads of food and entertainment options, there are also masque balls, art fairs and motorshows. Families also don't have to worry as kids are well looked after with several child-focused fiestas happening at the same time.
