The Fiesta Flambeau® Parade is known as America’s Largest Illuminated Night Parade, and has over one hundred entrants featuring bands, dancers, floats, and other entertainers.

The idea of this illuminated night parade was the brainchild of Reynolds Andricks who was long time Fiesta® entrepreneur. In 1948 he recommended that a new parade take place at night and that it be called Fiesta Flambeau®. Taking the inspiration from the night parades of Mardi Gras in New Orleans he believed, with help, he could create a unique event in San Antonio. 

This year's parade will pass in front of Alamo Church.
