Battle of Flowers Parade

When: Fri., April 27, 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

The 127th Annual Battle of Flowers Parade will kick off on Friday, April 27, 2018 with the entire Familia Cortez as grand marshal. In a nod to San Antonio’s Tricentennial celebration, the parade’s theme is “300 Timeless Treasures.” The parade also has a new, earlier start time this year. As the only parade in the United States produced entirely by women, all of whom are volunteers, the Battle of Flowers Association has supported the educational, artistic, social and philanthropic achievements of their community’s youth.
