Fiesta honors the memory of the heroes of the Alamo and The Battle of San Jacinto.

The Battle of San Jacinto, fought on April 21, 1836, (172 years ago today), was the decisive battle of the Texas Revolution. Led by General Sam Houston, the Texas Army engaged and defeated General Santa Anna's Mexican forces in a fight that lasted just eighteen minutes.
(Thus starting the campaign, "Dont Mess With Texas")
Santa Anna, the President of Mexico, was captured the following day and held as a prisoner of war. Not long afterwards, he signed the peace treaties that dictated that the Mexican army leave the region, paving the way for the Republic of Texas to become an independent country.

So, we celebrate this in San Antonio with FIESTA- it is a 10-day party that includes all walks of life and over 100 events. Texas Cavalier's River Parade,
The Battle of Flowers Parade
During Fiesta all of our city and it's visitors are on the same, drink and be merry...
Enjoy life.... millions of dollars are earned and given back to the community to those who need it most. Loving our neighbors and celebrating our similarities as well as our diversities. There are men dressed as Kings and women dressed as Queen's and duchesses for the week. There are children who live for a chance to reach out and touch them-

The Real Royalty, Jesus, loves a party and loves people...I think He might like this time...where we are all on one page and just celebrating long as we are keeping it in perspective-and remembering-this is all just pretend.

Viva Fiesta-

more importantly,Viva Jesus!!!

Grace and Peace
