Yellow Roses Everywhere

San Antonio is sporting thousands of yellow roses everywhere in honor of celebrating the Alamo’s 175th Anniversary this weekend. 

There was a predawn ceremony Saturday morning honoring the fallen on both sides of the 1836 Battle of the Alamo, which was fought in darkness. It has a very solemn tone, as thirteen candles are lit to remember the 13-day siege.

Through out the day educational activities and interactive demonstrations will give you an idea of what it was like to live through the event. Bagpipers and a Celtaire string band provide period music.

On Saturday evening an oversized wreath of yellow roses will be placed in front of the Alamo to commemorate the historic battle. The ceremony includes military and civic dignitaries, concerts by the Band of the West and the Barry Michael Band and the reading of the Crockett Letter.

At the San Fernando Cathedral City Center there will be an event which features speakers, dancers, music, and performances related to the Alamo and Tejano heritage.

There is always a party in San Antonio for some type of celebration and with Spring coming…so are the fiestas!  Viva San Antonio!

    I read today the roses were gold. There isn’t anything about the Alamo yellow.
