San Antonio Fiesta, often referred to as simply "Fiesta," is a two-week-long celebration that lights up the city of San Antonio, Texas, with a colorful explosion of culture, music, and food. It's a time when the city comes alive, and locals and visitors alike gather to revel in the festivities. While Fiesta offers a plethora of activities and events, some stand out as the biggest and most iconic. In this blog, we'll take you through the must-attend events during Fiesta San Antonio and how Fantasy RV Tours can enhance your experience with our San Antonio Fiesta RV Rally as part of our Heart of Texas RV Tour.

1. Battle of Flowers Parade

The Battle of Flowers Parade is the crown jewel of Fiesta San Antonio. It's the oldest and largest of the Fiesta parades, dating back to 1891. The parade's colorful floats, exuberant participants, and the shower of thousands of flowers on the spectators create an atmosphere of pure joy. It's a family-friendly event that's not to be missed. Arrive early to secure a good viewing spot along the parade route, and don't forget to wear a flower in your hair, as it's a tradition that adds to the festive spirit.

2. Fiesta Flambeau Parade

The Fiesta Flambeau Parade, often called the "Night Parade," is a dazzling spectacle that takes place after sunset. With illuminated floats, marching bands, and performers, this parade transforms the streets of San Antonio into a shimmering wonderland. It's a unique experience that allows you to see the vibrant colors and intricate details of the floats in a whole new light—literally! The Flambeau Parade is a fantastic way to enjoy Fiesta after dark.

3. NIOSA - A Night in Old San Antonio

A Night in Old San Antonio, or NIOSA, is an event that takes you back in time to experience the sights, sounds, and flavors of San Antonio's past. This historic preservation festival features more than 200 food and drink booths serving up delicious Tex-Mex cuisine and refreshing beverages. You can also enjoy live music, dance performances, and explore the various cultural themes represented throughout the event. NIOSA is a sensory delight that offers a taste of San Antonio's rich heritage.
