SAN ANTONIO – Fiesta Commission officials on Wednesday announced a location move for the 2022 Battle of Flowers Parade and the Fiesta Flambeau Parade to an alternate route from previous years.
The new route is necessary due to continued construction on Broadway that will affect parade participants, nonprofit seat vendors, bleachers and patrons.
During a news conference, officials announced that the 2.5-mile parade will start on Main Street near San Antonio College, where surrounding streets will be the site for the parade formation.
The street will head south on Main Street toward Crockett Park, where there will be bleacher seating. The parade will veer off onto Lexington, by Madison Square Park and turn left on St. Mary’s Street.
The parade will then head right on Brooklyn, where there will be bleachers as well. The route continues to Avenue E and makes a quick right onto Houston Street and then a quick left to Alamo Plaza.
The route then goes right on Commerce Street where the parade will end.
The 2022 Battle of Flowers Parade will be held on Friday, April 8 and the Fiesta Flambeau Parade to be held on Saturday, April 9.
Fiesta will be held March 31-April 10.
