SAN ANTONIO — Locals gathered at Mission Reach last Saturday for the 4th Annual Mission Reach Flotilla Fiesta. 

All were invited to the official Fiesta event held along an 8-mile stretch of the San Antonio River. 

The annual event included live music, delicious food, water games, a craft mercado, and a Fiesta-themed costume contest for San Antonians and their pets who paddled down the river for prizes. 

Mission Reach Flotilla Fiesta was put on by the San Antonio River Foundation and the San Antonio River Authority. The event was held to support the SA River Foundation's goal of providing the community with a positive educational, ecological, and recreational experience. 

Proceeds from the event went toward that goal, along with river improvements.
