Where to Park for Battle of Flowers Parade?

The average lot is $25 around The River Walk area, we parked in the Henry B Gonzalez garage for $15 and walked down: 850 E Commerce St, San Antonio, TX 78205, but this is towards the end of the parade. So no need to arrive early if parking here.

What is the Battle of Flowers Parade

Is it a parade that takes time earlier in the day along the same route as Flambeau but with a completely different theme. There are lots of floats, entertainers, all of the Fiesta Royalty, and more. It's a great place to trade medals. It is at the parade that we scored 2 dream medals from SA Flavor! The kids LOVED this event!

Parents Guide to The Battle of Flowers Parade:

Kid-Friendly: Yes but reserved seating makes things much nicer

Activities:

  • Walking around and people-watching.
  • Arts and Crafts booths along parade routes.
  • Food booths throughout.
  • Trade Medals and take photos.
  • Sit out and enjoy the parade strolling by.

Mom Tips:

  • Wear closed toe comfy shoes.
  • Arrive early so that you can enjoy it before it is too crowded to walk.
  • You can bring food and drinks.
  • During Fiesta, it is Open Carry for Alcohol, and you can order drinks to go.
  • Bring hand wipes and antibacterial.
  • Wagons and strollers in reserved seating areas would be hard.
  • I recommend purchasing reserved seats in the front row if you have little ones; otherwise, you have to get there early to fight for a seat.

And my overall is FOR Fiesta's Battle of Flowers Parade!!!!  We will definitely go back.

From Battle of Flowers Parade:

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 Battle of Flowers® Parade holds the distinction of being the first celebration to be held in Alamo Plaza and is considered the founding event of Fiesta® San Antonio. 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.
