  • Pilgrimage To The Alamo - The Pilgrimage to the Alamo began in 1918 as a replacement for the Battle of Flowers Parade, which did not occur that year due to the country being at war. In place of the military, which was not available to participate in the Battle of Flowers Parade, Boy Scouts led the procession to the Alamo. The Pilgrimage to the Alamo is a solemn and silent procession for six blocks, from the Vietnam War Memorial to the Alamo. The pilgrimage is scheduled to start at 4 p.m. at the Vietnam War Memorial, located at 451 Jefferson St. The event is free to attend.
