San Antonio Parade. San Antonio Western Heritage and Cattle Drive.
Every year before the rodeo in San Antonio, Texas there is a parade. Lots of wagons, horses, and a real life cattle drive. We decided to get our chores done a bit early. Then took the family once again on a little Texas Adventure.
The cattle drive consisted of horses, sheep, wagons, and Long Horns that had some serious clown stabbers. There was about a half a dozen Longhorns saddled up with their riders on board. These cowpokes rode the bovine all the way through the San Antonio parade.
The San Antonio parade started around the Santa Rosa Hospital area and stretched all the way down Houston street where it finished at the ALAMO!!! There was a slight detour this year due to construction, but this did not stop the main event of them longhorns coming through downtown.
Parade of course was free, but the best part was the free biscuits and gravy. Rather than fast food it came off the chuck wagons set up out in front of the ALAMO. Great way to get everyone in the rodeo spirit. There was vendors that served free juice, milk, coffee, water and most of all activities for the kids.
Just don’t understand why people travel to other countries much less outside the Great United State of TEXAS to have fun and relax when we have it all right here. Ocean, mountains, islands, forest, desert, prairie etc. all in one state. No need to go crazy when most places of adventure are just a short drive away.
