After the movie we poked around antique shops and different places around Alamo Plaza that we had wanted to explore. We wandered into the lobby of the most fabulous old hotel that was absolutely stunning. I don't even know the name of it but I had to include some pictures it was just to beautiful to pass by.
We passed by this statue every single day. It just felt so wrong not to take a picture of it
We had picked El Mirador for lunch. We had heard it was the best fresh Mexican in the city. It was quite a walk to get there, but it was definitely worth it. The food was indeed super fresh and very delicious! And the atmosphere was extrememly fun as well.
I loved the signs for the bathroom, I thought they were too fun not to document.
Then we parted ways once again, Karin and Ricky's family had a few things they wanted to do before they left and I really wanted to see the St. Patrick's parade down on the river. So mom and dad were nice enough to brave the crowds with me to join in the holiday fun! The river got greener and greener as the day went on!
So many people dressed up in their best St. Patty's day attire, it was fun to walk through the crowd and see what everyone had put on to honor the holiday.
More and more people kept coming down to the walk as it got closer and closer to the time of the parade, it got super duper crowded which was fun but intense at the same time haha.
Green clad people everywhere! So fun!
Finally it was time for the parade!
Some floats threw out fun prizes
Some tourist boats got trapped in the middle of the parade, but got plenty appluase from the crowds and they floated by
The last boat of the parade was the one adding the dye to the river. I thought it was crazy to see the contrast of the different colors!
Then we had to pack up and drive to the airport :( but at least we had had a fun and festive holiday. San Antonio really knows how to celebrate St. Patrick's Day! I had a blast. While waiting for the plane I had to pick up a few more treats that are special to Texas to cheer me up a little bit since being at the airport waiting for a flight home is always so sad to me. These treats were delicious!
