April means Battle of Flowers is our First Saturday exhibit!

April 1, 2015

You’re invited! We hope that you will join us for our First Saturday exhibit this Saturday, April 4th, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m!

April is Fiesta time in San Antonio, and the Alamo Research Center is no exception! Our exhibit this month is “A Medley of Beauty, A Dream of Fair Women,” a celebration of the long and storied history of the Battle of Flowers Parade and the Battle of Flowers Association that makes the parade possible. If you would like to learn more about Battle of Flowers resources here at the ARC or read up on the history of the parade and the organization, you can check out these links:
