Fiesta is here, but you already knew that. In just a few days, however, we’ve learned not to trust the weatherman and just play it all by ear.
Sure, the fireworks over Fort Sam were canceled because it was wet beyond wet. And yet, despite forecasts of thunderstorms, the Texas Cavaliers River Parade and the Fiesta Oyster Bake both went off without a hitch.
Here you can enjoy a few visual memories of both events as you get ready for NIOSA, the Battle of Flowers Parade, Fiesta Flambeau and more.
You can expect to get your fill of your favorite treats. Already I’ve enjoyed my annual chicken on a stick crowned with a jalapeno as well as a tub of oysters. But this year brought something new to Oyster Bake: freshly cut and fried potato chips that were too good for words.
Gorditas, corn in a cup, borracho beans, sausage on a stick, corn dogs, paletas, cotton candy and more have all been a part of my Fiesta diet. And I’m making Cowboy Klopse at NIOSA on Tuesday. I don’t eat like this the rest of the year — honest. How about you? What are you favorite Fiesta flavors? Let us know.
