June 17-27 is a special time in the city of San Antonio, Texas. That is when Fiesta San Antonio takes place, an event that started in 1891 to honor the memory of those who fought at the Alamo and the Battle of San Jacinto.
That historic commemoration still takes place, but for more than a century, Fiesta has grown into a celebration of San Antonio’s rich and diverse cultures and today is one of this nation’s premier festivals with an economic impact of more than $340 million. Funds raised by official Fiesta events provide services to San Antonio citizens throughout the year.
One of the city’s most popular bakeries is La Panadería, and this year it’s offering a special pastry in honor of Fiesta. The colorful Tres Leches croissant is filled with strawberries and cream and is topped with Fiesta-colored frosting.
The croissant will be available at the panadería’s three locations from June 17-27.
