The Fiesta Flambeau Parade Association, Inc. sincerely regrets that Public Health concerns have forced the rescheduling of Fiesta 2020. The new dates of Fiesta are November 5th through November 15th. That means our parade will be November 14th, 2020. Many of our participants have agreed to the change. If you have already purchased bleacher seats, you're set. You have seats to one of the World's Best Parades. The tickets will not be reprinted so keep them in a safe place. If you cannot use them, you can sell them to someone else to attend. There will be no refunds issued. Our organization continues with its plan to light up San Antonio skiesin November. Viva Flambeau!
Viva Flambeau !
America's Greatest Night Parade!...
Time to start planning for the 72nd Annual Fiesta Flambeau® Parade! This marks the second year in a row our parade has been named “best” in our budget category. Last year Best in the World by the International Festivals and Events Association and in August 2019, Best in Texas at the Texas Festivals and Events Association. Two great awards that make us proud to be Flambeau® members and Fiesta® family. The theme for the 2020 Flambeau® Parade is “Celebrating Classic Novels”. Reading books is such an important activity in all our lives that we’re pausing to pay homage to the stories we remember most.
Since 1948, the Fiesta Flambeau® Parade has illuminated the streets of beautiful downtown San Antonio. The highlight of the 2.6-mile parade is the joy and excitement it brings to an international line-up of bands, floats, singers and dancers and most of all over 750,000 street spectators. Fiesta Flambeau® is indeed a multigenerational tradition for both participants and spectators.
The Board of Directors, our members, and I are working feverishly to produce an over the top experience for 2020. The parade will step off on April 25th. So, settle back and grab a book or “Cliff Notes” and get ready to see the classics come alive. Watch and enjoy every exciting minute.
