SAN ANTONIO, Texas (KENS) – The Battle of Flowers Parade honors the heroic spirit of the patriots of the Alamo, commemorates the victory of San Jacinto and celebrates the diversity and heritage of Texas and our nation.
As the second largest day parade in the U.S., the Battle of Flowers Parade supports the educational, artistic, social and philanthropic achievements of our community’s youth. The parade has entertained our city every year since 1891, except during World Wars I and II.
This parade is the only parade in the nation produced entirely by volunteer women and affords non-profit organizations the opportunity to raise funds with over 45,000 parade seats sold by charities along the parade route each year.
