San Antonio-Fiesta Fiesta Celebration

After the dance rally I moved to San Antonio. There is a Cajun Festival this weekend, but also the Fiesta Fiesta Celebration is going on in San Antonio. So I got parked and some of us took off to downtown to join in the Fiesta.

The river parade was last Monday, but today was the Power of Flower parade. I heard they estimated 350,000 people turned out for the parade.

Lots of floats and lots of flowers.

There were also lots of marching bands, but didn't get any pictures. The parade went of for over 3 hours and they said this was the small parade. Saturday night (tonight) is the moonlight parade. Hopefully I'll get to see some of it too.

Looking down at the River Walk. Even while the parade was going on, both the River Walk and Market Square was crowded with people.

After the parade was over we walked down to the Alamo.

And of course we had to visit the Buckhorn Saloon, the oldest saloon in Texas. Notice all the horns above Max. I wonder how many deer it took to get all those horns.

Today we head to Traders Village for the Cajun Festival. Live cajun music from noon to 4, and good cajun food all day.
