SAN ANTONIO – Country singer-songwriter and native San Antonian Pat Green is the 2019 Battle of Flowers Parade grand marshal.
This year's parade theme is "For the Love of Texas."
Green said that thanks to the Alamo defenders, Texans get to enjoy the freedoms we do today.
"It's Jim Bowie, Travis and all the men who laid down their lives for us, so we could have Texas. And I'm really proud to be a part of that because, dang, I like my house," Green said in an interview recorded recently in Austin.
The parade will snake through downtown San Antonio on April 26.
About 12,000 people are expected to participate in the Fiesta favorite.
