About 100 local organizations, more than 75,000 volunteers, and more than 100 events over 10 days make the Fiesta San Antonio a real Texas-sized festival. Countless parades on the street or on the river attract thousands of people. The colors mainly used on the decorations and costumes are a symbol of Spring. Women often wear colorful Mexican/Oaxacan-styled dresses with original designs and coronas, crowns made of paper flowers, also very bright.
Amazing fiesta hats and sombreros as well can be seen on almost every participant. After the day events, visit the Night in Old San Antonio (NIOSA) where you'll feel the real party atmosphere. These street parties are extremely busy and fun, with lots of loud music, dances, food, and drinks.
