The City of San Antonio owes its annual Fiesta to a small group of passionate, dedicated women who started it all with the first Battle of Flowers® Parade in 1891. 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.

The Battle of Flowers® Parade has been postponed until 2022, but the esteemed Past Presidents of the Battle of Flowers® Association will present floral tributes at the Alamo on Wednesday, April 21 to honor the heroes of the Battle of San Jacinto.
