About Fiesta Flambeau Night Parade San Antonio Tickets

Fiesta Flambeau Night Parade San Antonio, a lighted parade, was the brilliant brainchild Reynolds Andricks who was a civil engineer by profession. Although Andricks insisted that he knew little about parades, in 1948 he was included in the Board of the Fiesta San Jacinto Association. He later recalled his first meeting to be totally astounding as it came as a surprise to him to discover that so many people were interested in Fiesta. Later on his recommendation, a fresh parade was organized to be held at night and known as Fiesta Flambeau that takes place in San Antonio today.
The idea of hosting a night parade was not totally new. Andricks has stated that he had thoroughly enjoyed other night parades such as the famous Mardi Gras festivities that took place in New Orleans.  Nevertheless, he firmly believed in the notion of creating a flamboyant parade in San Antonio. William Petmecky belonging to the Fredericksburg German community was brought on board to help with the formation of this new parade. Petmecky was a tax assessor and then a postmaster for the Gillespie County. In about 50 years, Petmecky spent his free time at the county fairs. Soon enough he started the popular Easter Fires Pageant held in Fredericksburg. He wrote the script as well as the pamphlet that described the story. He was nicknamed as ‘Festivallmpresario’. At this time, Andricks was diligently forming the Fiesta Flambeau and Petmecky had spawned a great repute as being the originator of folk festivals. When Petmecky was approached to help make the premier illuminated night parade, he was simply ecstatic.
Together Petmecky and Andricks thought the most efficient manner to light the Fiesta Flambeau Night Parade San Antonio course was to torch the brigades. Each brigade comprises of four men who carry flares that are similar to those the warning devices used by police. These flares can be seen attached to poles five feet high. The units of the torches march between intervals of the ten parade entries, lighting the night away as they march on. The bands seen at the parade, fix flashlights to their music stand.
