The very first Battle of Flowers parade dates back to 1891 when a group of women from San Antonio sought a way to commemorate and pay their respects to the brave individuals who fought and died in the Battle of the Alamo and the Battle of San Jacinto. This inaugural parade took place in front of the Alamo where participants threw flowers at each other to reenact each of these battles. Each year the celebration grew in duration. Today, Fiesta San Antonio has grown into an 11-day event full of medals, vibrant colors, live music and entertainment, delicious food and so much more. Part of Fiesta fun is getting to see Fiesta Royalty's footwear of choice.
