BATTLE OF FLOWERS PARADE 2016

IMG_5446

After days of rainy and unpredictable weather, the sky cleared, and it was bright and sunny for the 125th Battle of Flowers Parade. Drawing a crowd of over 350,000, this is the oldest and most traditional Fiesta event. It is the only parade in the United States produced entirely by women, all of whom are volunteers. Our bleacher section leader, Lynn, was cheerful and dressed like the other volunteers in yellow with a matching yellow hat. Over 200 organizations participated in this year’s parade including high school and college bands, military groups, and Fiesta royalty. It was also fun to see all of the bright flower covered floats, elaborate Coronation dresses, giant balloons, horse drawn carriages and antique cars. The theme centered around Texas traditions and each of the participants honored the heroes of the Alamo by placing flowers on the lawn in front of the National Historic Landmark.
