The King William Fair Parade Kicks Off the Day


Make sure to include the Parade when you come to the King William Fair on April 29.

The King William area was originally farmland, irrigated by acequias flowing from the San Antonio River, owned by the 1718 Mission San Antonio de Valero, better known as the Alamo. By the late 19th century, the district was the most graceful residential area in the city. In 1968, it was zoned as Texas’ first historic district. The King William Fair and Parade started in 1968 and was about three blocks long. This year, the fair will celebrate its 50th anniversary and feature 200 arts and crafts vendors, 50 food vendors, and 45 entertainment acts. The Parade is 1.5 miles long with 66 entries and more than 1,500 participants.
