Fiesta Week

It’s Fiesta Week here in San Antonio. Parades, queens, princesses, school bands, and thousands of locals and tourists alike enjoying San Antonio’s annual event. It is a time of celebration and fun!

According to the website on, the history of this event goes like this: “In 1891, a group of ladies decorated horse-drawn carriages, paraded in front of the Alamo, and pelted each other with flower blossoms. The parade was organized to honor the heroes from the battles of the Alamo and San Jacinto."

It has really grown since then. Visit the website above to find out more. In the meantime, I have a “Fiesta Wreath” in my home to start the week off right.
