      Bus Trip to the Battle of Flowers Parade

      The Battle of Flowers® Parade honors the heroic spirit of the patriots of the Alamo, commemorates the victory of San Jacinto and celebrates the diversity and heritage of Texas and our nation. Spectacular, flower-covered floats with participants adorned in colorful costumes, beautiful dresses, and striking uniforms, feature local civic and military groups, businesses and members of the Fiesta royalty. This year's Parade will travel through Texas to discover what lies at the core of the State boasting the biggest heart with the theme, “For the Love of Texas!” See many festively decorated floats with live music and costumed participants. We will travel by motorcoach, leaving from the Home Depot across from the Library at 7:30 am and arriving back that afternoon about 1:30 pm.  The bus will drop us at a location near our seats* (see below).  Once the parade is over, we will head back to the bus.
