I love living in San Antonio, particularly during Fiesta. During Fiesta the city really joins together and comes alive with all kinds of parties, parades, fairs, concerts and more.

This year I worked a booth for a client at the King William Fair. It was my first time at this fair and I highly recommend it! It is set among the street of the King William district, a very fashionable area of San Antonio. The King William district is a 25-block area in downtown San Antonio on the south bank of the San Antonio River. It features old, large houses shaded by massive cypress and pecan trees. The fair has a parade and all kinds of activities for families including games, art booths, food and music.

Many of the homes in the King William district were brightly decorated for Fiesta – I just wanted to walk up and down the street taking pictures of the houses!

Can you believe this is in downtown San Antonio? It looks like it’s in the middle of the woods!

I want a house with pink doors!

My favorite booth was hosted by the Alamo Colleges International Programs. They had an activity for kids to make their own hat out of paper bags! This is Hannah, one of the gals that works events with me. Love her!

I can’t wait to take Luke to this fair next year! Viva Fiesta!

      My favorite used to be an online free one called Piknik but they just got purchased by Google. I’m trying to find another one that I really like and will get back to you when I have one that I like enough to recommend.

      The river runs right through downtown. Yeah, unfortunately, I couldn’t take Baby Luke with me since I was working my client’s booth all day.

    LOVE SA! We went there in 2007 and I swear we ready to move, but the housing market went down and we would lose too much if we sold. We still dream of living in SA!
