One of the greatest events of Fiesta is the Fiesta Fandango fun run by the San Antonio Roadrunners. This 2.6 mile route takes costumed runners through the course of the Fiesta Flambeau parade before it begins. It’s a lot of fun because there are so many people cheering you on throughout the race!
You can still register for this race and enter the costume contest today; my friends and I have participated in the race the past for years, placing in the top three at the costume contest dressing up as the Flintstones, Wizard of Oz, cereal boxes and piñatas. It’s $40 to run and the registration starts at 4:00 p.m. at the Sunken Gardens. And by entering, you even get this sweet medal!
