What began as a patriotic celebration to honor the heroes of the Alamo, Goliad and the Battle of San Jacinto has since evolved into one of the oldest and largest parades in the country. Today, The Battle of the Flowers® Association – the only all-women, all-volunteer organization producing events of its kind – continues to present the Battle of Flowers® Parade as an integral part of the citywide celebration.

This year's parade, Viva Las Flores, will pass in front of Alamo Church. The San Antonio Academy Honor Guard will place floral wreaths on the sacred ground in front of the Alamo to honor the heroes of the Alamo.
