Just moved here and have no idea what this is. Saw people on the news waiting all night for tickets....is this sold out and if not is this family friendly? Is every year the same thing as I see this has happened in the past?

Thanks everybody

Fiesta lasts for 11 days. It is a series of events happening all over SA. Plenty things are family friendly. I would recommend the King William Fair for the family. Would NOT recommend NIOSA (Night in Old San Antonio), and St. Mary's Oyster Bake as a family event.

Fiesta San Antonio

Oh, and the parades are family friendly, of course. Battle of Flowers day parade and the Fiesta Flambeau night parade.
