Stores in San Antonio are getting into the Fiesta spirit by stocking shelves with Fiesta gear. Alongside the usual merchandise, customers can find piñatas, cascarones, flowered halos, and sombreros.

The manager of the Walmart on Jones Maltsberger says his store has seen a surge in business due to the Fiesta merchandise, some of which has already sold out.

"We sold thousands of halos, it was great. And sombreros, literally as we are putting them out on the counter, people are buying them before we can get them out on the counter," Scott Redman said.

Fiesta starts Thursday and runs for 11 days.
