We’re sad to say that FIESTA 2010 is almost over, but there’s still plenty of time to enjoy a long list of events. Here are our top picks:
Friday – Battle of Flowers Parade with an early dinner afterward at Green Vegetarian Cuisine . We’re not even vegetarians and we love this place! Their terrific Portabella Burger and Onion Rings are well worth the visit.
Saturday – Begin your day with a big bowl of oatmeal (with all the toppings) or a Meditterranean omelette at Twin Sisters Bakery & Cafe on New Braunfels St. Afterward, these are our top picks for a very full day:
- The always fun and friendly Pooch Parade. Not a pooch lover? Then, try…
- The Cactus & Xerophyte State Show. It’s inspiring!
- The King William Fair and Parade will entertain the whole family.
Sunday – After church services, or sleeping in, your final FIESTA day begins with a leisurely brunch at the Lighthouse Cafe in Olmos Park. Their famous coffee and Eggs Benedict are wonderful (everything here is wonderful). Nearby, The San Antonio Symphonic Band Concert will be featuring music about the great rivers of the world, including the San Antonio River Walk.
With the minimal (or no) entry fees at most of these events, and the ability to purchase good food at affordable prices with our $5Dining Restaurants, you may even complete your FIESTA weekend with money left in your pocket!
