Fiesta

Held every year in late April, Fiesta is a massive, mariachi fuelled celebration that spans 10 days, hundreds of performers and thousands of spectators from across San Antonio's multicultural spectrum. With over 100 events, it is by some margin the biggest party in Texas and a great time to visit the city. Fiesta originated in 1891 and has today grown into a community benefit event that generates millions for charity. The Battle of Flowers Parade is the only parade in the country to planned and directed only by women, and is also the second-largest parade in the country. Some of the events included in the week-long extravaganza are a 10k walk, 10th Street River Festival, Battle of Flowerds Band Festival, Champagne and Diamonds Brunch, Fiesta Arts Fair, Fiesta Bird Mart, Fiesta Flower Show, Fiesta Lacrosse Tournament, Fiesta Pooch Parade, Incognite: Fiesta's Masked Ball, Patriotic and Historical Ball, Texas Corvette Association Car Show, and many, many more. Children are well looked after with several child-focused fiestas taking place dring the ten days ofc elebration.
