Fiesta and Flowers


For the past 10 days San Antonio has been celebrating Fiesta, a city-wide celebration of our local history and culture. Today is the biggest event of Fiesta, the Battle of Flowers Parade. Hundreds of thousands of people will line the streets of downtown to watch the flower-decked floats and cheer for Fiesta Royalty. It’s such a big deal that even the schools are closed today! Here’s a one minute video on the history of Fiesta.

Now we’ve gotta get back to work – since we’re not in school we don’t get a holiday today.
