FIESTA 2016 KICK OFF CEREMONY~PHOTO FRIDAY

The city of San Antonio knows how to party. However, come Fiesta time, we take it to a whole new level! Last night the 10-day festival kicked off at Alamo Plaza. The official opening brought out a lively crowd of unique hat-wearing, pin-collecting, dog- toting revelers. There was live entertainment, royalty mingling through the crowd and a short parade. My favorite was Pin Pandemonium, a large area set up to buy, sell or trade Fiesta pins. And it was a surreal moment at the end of the night to watch the fireworks go off behind the Alamo. Just gorgeous, and a reminder to really appreciate the great city we live in, and the history behind the event dating back to 1891.

Please enjoy these pictures of the first Fiesta event of 2016, shot exclusively by Jennifer Jae Eastwood, with Blonde Bexar Images. Viva Fiesta!!
