Fiesta Survival Tips




Meet Isis Madrid. She’s our digital content editor. Isis moved to San Antonio from Boston, Mass., last summer, which means she’s never before experienced the cultural behemoth known as Fiesta.

She needs advice, lots of it. Because she both lives and works downtown, Isis can’t really run or hide from the 10-day explosion of parades, carnivals, concerts, and parties.

Help Isis out and leave your tips for the ultimate Fiesta experience in our comment section. Explain the deal with cascarones, why people yell  'show me your shoes!,' the best time to hit up NIOSA, King William Fair versus the Night Parade, etc

. We’ll publish the best pearls of wisdom in our April 17 issue along with our Fiesta guide.  – Callie Enlow
