Many San Antonians celebrated the third official day of Fiesta at the San Antonio Botanical Garden’s Viva Botánica, a fun-filled family adventure through one of the cities most charming gardens.

Attending families decorated strollers, wagons, and even their shoes prior to the children’s parade through the unique Texas Native Trail that traverses the garden grounds. Along the way children participated in activities such as crafting, music, and plant life education. Folkorico dancers made quite an impression on stage near the fountain in the plaza to kick off the colorful parade.

Organizations such as the San Antonio Bonsai Society and Bexar Audubon Society prepared visuals and hands-on lessons for the entire family. With Chipotle serving scrumptious tacos and the Alamo Heights High School Drum Line leading the parade with rhythmic percussion, Viva Botánica is a Fiesta event to remember.
