All night campers eager for Fiesta parades

Cascarones cracking, confetti flying early


The night before the Battle of Flowers Parade, people are putting the finishing touches on their parade watching spots all while starting the party a little early.

Robert Trevino has been spending day and night along Broadway since last Friday to prepare his spot and build one awesome booth.

But Trevino said he hasn't been sleeping much these last days.

"Oh, it's going to be a busy night," said Trevino. "I've got a lot of stress, but we got to make the party happen."

Another camper, Mary Escobedo, said she simply couldn't imagine Fiesta parades without all night camping.

"Oh, no! It's not possible," said Escobedo.

The Battle of Flowers parade starts Friday at 12:30pm.
