VIVAAAA LA FIESTA!
ARRIBA! ARRIBA! ARRIBA! That is the phrase I took away last night after attending one of San Antonio’s famous traditions. It is when the city comes together and celebrate for 10 days straight. This year it fell on April 20-30th!
The streets of the riverwalk were completely filled with people in their colorful accessories representing the traditions of Fiesta. My friend and I started on Main Street and that’s where we got our directions to start from central market and work down from there.
FOOD. Being from California, I Liveeeeee for some Corn in a cup, Carne Asada tacos, or a Juicy Gordita. Living on the east coast and overseas, aunthentic Mexican food is definitely hard to find. Welp, thanks to Fiesta, I was able to get some AMAZINGGGG authentic Mexican food, candy, and drinks!
LIVE MUSIC. There was soo much Live Music from performers on stage, DJ’s playing music on the sides, or just random people on the corner with their boom boxes. It ranged from Country to hip hop to Spanish. There was so much music 🎶 that it was fit for any age and crowd.
ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES. If you’re into Margaritas, beer, wine slushes, or more beer, then you would definitely enjoy Fiesta. The Beer is a little pricey ranging from $3-$6 but when you’re having a good time, who’s really counting! 🤷🏽♀️🤷🏽♀️ the margaritas were premade so in reality it was juice but the wine slushes were AMAZING! Totally worth trying.
DANCING. Now for the best part. I did not expect to be out all night on a Thursday knowing I had to work the next day but it was totally worth it. My friend and I walked down to central Market following the directions we received and we stayed down there the entire time. There was so much food, beverages, and music. Plus the decorations were beautiful. We ended up walking to where we found the DJ and the younger College students. It was suchhhh a good time. The party was outside but it did get extremely hot to the point of sweat rolling down! 😩😩 (AGAIN, totally Worth it). We danced all night to Literally every type of music. The DJ was awesome and the people were definitely lively. Not to mention the Spurs won that night!
Seriously, if you are ever in the San Antonio area during the month of April, you must put on your list to attend some Fiesta activities. Promise you won’t be disappointed! ❤️
