SAS is proud to be a part of Fiesta San Antonio for the third year in a row. This year’s theme of the Battle of Flowers Parade is: Texas Traditions…125 Years! What is Fiesta you ask?

Since 1891 San Antonio has honored the fallen heroes of the battles of the Alamo and San Jacinto. This celebration started as just one parade, and has since become a ten day long festival that brings in over $284 million for the city. The Battle of Flowers parade is now the largest parade during Fiesta, and is the only parade in the United States that is organized by women. During the parade these volunteering women dress head to toe in yellow, and direct all parade operations with the help of the National Guard.

SAS will have a float in the parade with giant replicas of our shoes. 22 of our employees will join our float as it makes it way through downtown San Antonio along with over 350,000 spectators.
