Fiesta San Antonio!

Fiesta week in San Antonio is upon us. It is that time again, San Antonio's celebration occurs every April. There are so many events planned this year and I promise to provide a schedule for some of the favorite events. But first, my thoughts on Fiesta San Antonio . I have been attending Fiesta week ever since I was a boy. I have many great memories of the Battle of Flowers parade, the Fiesta Flambeau parade,St. Mary's University Oyster bake and the King William Fair. I will always remember the sounds, the sights, the smells of Fiesta. There are crowds galore. There is plenty of pushing, spilling and spending. (I would wear old clothes and tennis shoes for sure!) And the other thing, Fiesta week always falls on my birthday!
