Fiesta week culminates on Friday night with a big celebration in the streets of downtown called "A Night in Old San Antonio" (NIOSA). Droves of people came out to celebrate (including us)!
NIOSA celebrates the culture of San Antonio--especially the Mexican culture that is such a big part of the texture of the city. Besides being packed with people, the streets are lined with booths decorated with bright, beautiful colors, selling everything kind of food you can imagine...
...including fajitas, burritos, and (yummmmm) churros!
One of the most fun parts of the fiesta celebration are cascarones!
Cascarones are empty egg shells filled with confetti. If you want to celebrate with someone, you crack one of those babies right on his head! I thought I'd be sneaky and indoctrinate Hubs with a cascaron to the head, but at the same time I was getting him covered with confetti, our friend Pat got me!
It was great fun, as you can see by the way I threw my head back laughing.
Yep, that would be me trying to get the confetti out my mouth that fell squarely in it when I threw my head back laughing. :)
