‘Celebrations’ of music, students,Texas history & Fiesta Welcome to the 122nd Battle of Flowers® Parade: Celebrations! Since 1891, joviality has reigned as revelers take to the downtown streets of San Antonio for the oldest parade of Fiesta® San Antonio. The parade was originally organized and staged by a group of women to honor and celebrate Texas Independence. Today, it has grown into an 11-day citywide celebration! The Battle of Flowers® Parade continues to be the only parade in the United Stated produced entirely by women, all of whom are volunteers. This year marks the 75th anniversary of our Band Festival, which is a festive way to showcase local and visiting high school bands. The Battle of Flowers produces this family entertainment venue on the Thursday night of Fiesta before the Parade. Individual and grouped marching bands perform beautiful and stirring musical offerings, leading up to a jubilant finale featuring all 3,500 students in unison. Over the years, the Battle of Flowers Association has expanded our scope of service to our community

through educational outreach. These events include an Oratorical Contest open to college students, an Essay Contest for middle school students and a Band Festival Program Cover Contest for high school students. Held prior to Fiesta, these events are designed to encourage study and pride in Texas. The winners of these contests will be riding in the Parade today so please wave to them and cheer them on! The Battle of Flowers Parade has delighted countless generations of families, friends and visitors with colorful pageantry each year. Thank you for joining us today as we continue this proud tradition. Have a wonderful time and we’ll see you next year!

Mr. Armie Hammer Grand Marshal Born in Los Angeles, Armand Douglas Hammer grew up in Dallas, Los Angeles and the Cayman Islands, where he was a student at Grace Christian Academy, a school founded by his father. His film debut was his portrayal of an unnamed student in Flicka (2006), but he began to get noticed when he was cast in the lead role of Billy Graham in the indie film Billy: The Early Years, which received a limited release in the United States. In 2009, Armie played recurring roles on two CW hit series: Gossip Girl and Reaper. The following year, he made it to the big leagues playing a double role as the Winklevoss twins in the critically-acclaimed major motion picture The Social Network, for which he won Best Supporting Actor from the Toronto Film Critics Association as well as several ensemble awards with the rest of the cast. Since then his career has continued to soar, playing Clyde Tolson in J. Edgar, directed by Clint Eastwood and starring Leonardo DiCaprio; and Prince Andrew Alcott in the movie Mirror Mirror (2012) opposite Julia Roberts as the Evil Queen and Lily Collins as Snow White. He recently landed his biggest part to date in the title role in The Lone Ranger, co-starring with Johnny Depp as Tonto. Armie was awarded the Young Hollywood Award in the category of Male Star of Tomorrow in 2011. Armie

Hammer was due to receive the Male Star of Tomorrow Award at this year’s CinemaCon earlier this month. Armie married television personality Elizabeth Chambers in 2010. A native San Antonian, Elizabeth remembers many hours spent with her maternal grandmother, Maureen Carnathan, who ran a wellrespected catering business in Alamo Heights for many years. The couple recently returned to the city and opened Bird Bakery, where Armie can sometimes be found testing the delicious cupcakes and desserts created by Elizabeth and her team. Armie is the great-grandson of industrialist, art collector, and philanthropist Armand Hammer. He plays guitar, is a magician and loves his wife and dog.

Salutes our Honorary Grand Marshal Steve Huffman Steve Huffman serves as the Founder and President of the Returning Heroes Home (RHH) Project which supports the Warrior and Family Support Center on Fort Sam Houston. The Warrior and Family Support Center is the only one of its kind, offering a safe environment for military families to reconnect following military operations and restart their lives with the full support of the military community. Mr. Huffman designed and raised the funding for the new Warrior and Family Support Center with a "living room" environment, to provide all the comforts of home while the Wounded Warriors and their Families are so far away from their own. This dedicated building includes a large social gathering area, kitchen facilities, a dining room, a learning facility for computerized training, a private counseling room, a business center with high speed internet access, a game room, and large open front and back porch areas, fans for cooling, shaded areas, playgrounds for children, and an opportunity to work in the gardens. What better connection to Celebrations! and our Parade’s mission of honoring the fallen heroes of the Alamo than to have Steve as our Honorary Grand Marshal.

Children’s Day (Japan)

Louis D. Brandeis High School

A Japanese national holiday since 1948, the celebration takes place the fifth day of the fifth month as a part of the Golden Week. The day is set aside to respect children’s personalities and to celebrate their happiness.

Cinco de Mayo (Mexico)

Randolph High School

Mayo Cinco de

Cinco de Mayo or “fifth of May” celebrates Mexican heritage and pride. The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican’s army unlikely victory over French Forces at the Battle of Puebla under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguin. Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence Day which is actually celebrated on September 16th.

lio Il Pa

Il Palio (Italy)

Ronald Reagan High School

The Palio di Siena (known locally simply as Il Palio) is a horse race that is held twice each year, on July 2 and August 16, in Siena, Italy. Ten horses and riders, dressed in the appropriate colors, represent ten of the seventeen contrade, or city wards. The race itself, in which the jockeys ride bareback, circles the Piazza Del Campo on which a thick layer of dirt has been laid, three times and usually lasts no more than 90 seconds. It is not uncommon for a few of the jockeys to be thrown off their horses while making the treacherous turns in the piazza. It is not unusual to see unmounted horses finishing the race.

Los Sanfermines (Spain)

William J. Brennan High School

rmines Los Sanfe

The Running of the Bulls is a practice that involves individuals running in front of a small group (typically a dozen) of bulls that have been let loose, on a course of a section of a town’s streets. The most famous running of the bulls is the seven-day festival of Sanfermines in honor of San Fermin in Pamplona. The original purpose of this event was to transport the bulls from the off-site corrals where they had spent the night, to the bullring where they would be killed in the evening.

Pushkar C amel Fair

Pushkar Camel Fair (India)

James Madison High School

An astonishing 50,000 camels converge on the tiny desert town of Pushkar, in India’s state of Rajasthan for the Pushkar Camel Fair. For five days, the camels are dressed up, paraded, shaved, entered into beauty contests, raced, and of course traded. It’s a great opportunity to witness an old, traditional style Indian festival.

Rio Carnival (Brazil) Thomas Edison High School The Carnival in Rio de Janeiro is a world famous festival held before Lent every year and is considered the biggest carnival in the world with two million people per day on the streets. The first festivals of Rio date back to 1723. Parade float drawings (c) 2012 Lone Star Floats

First and second place Essay Contest winners, Emery Wright (left) and Mikayla Greiner (right), both of St. Luke’s Episcopal School, with their proud teacher, Jessica Koontz.

Emery Wright’s winning essay: The Killough Massacre The Killough Massacre was a tragic incident for the Killough family; they are commemorated with a cemetery and a historical land marker to remind the town of this horrible event, which took place near where Jacksonville, Texas is today. The Killoughs were mad up of about 30 people, including daughters, sons, and in-laws, all of who had moved from Alabama. When the Killoughs began settling, there was fear in the air of violent Indians. This fear was so intense, that the Killoughs evacuated from their new settlement for six weeks, where they stayed in Nacogdoches, until they felt it was safe to come home. Since the Killoughs lived forty miles from their nearest neighbor, they were very cautions; the men carried guns when they worked on the plantations. On the afternoon of October 5, 1838, the men left their guns at home. They always separated into groups to inspect the crops, even though the groups were not even. Some Indians, who had been watching them for days, then attached the bigger group. All eighteen members of that group were either killed or kidnapped. One man, with the name of Isaac Killough Jr., was discovered dead with eighteen bullets in his body. When Isaac’s wife, Urcy, found him dead, she asked the Indians to shoot her aw well, but they would not because the women and children were not to be harmed. The three women and the baby that survived resolved to head for Lacy’s Fort, which was forty miles from their location. The women decided to travel by night, because there were other violent tribes that would hurt women. Then one day the women and the baby were so tired and they just wanted to get to safety, so they traveled during the day. Just as they sus-

pected in the beginning, there were Indians patrolling through during the day. They ran into an Indian with a gun, but he told them the gun was unloaded and took them to a log cabin. There, the women were told that there was a vehement tribe further down the trail that most likely would have killed them. The women and the baby were given food and space to stay the night there. The next morning, they rode on horses to Lacy’s Fort. The women told everyone of the melancholy event and how they were the only survivors of the hostile Indians. They called on General Rusk for help; in 1837 he was the chairman of the House Military Committee and he was later made the general of the Nacogdoches militia. General Rusk gathered a group of volunteers to face the cruel Indians. Hundreds of men marched to the outside of the Indian’s fort and spent the night there. The next morning, the enemy attacked, but they were no match for the army of volunteers. Once the Indians were defeated, Gen. Rusk and the rest of the men left eleven Indians dead. Even though there were many Indian attacks leading up to this horrific event, this was the largest Indian massacre in Texas at the time. To this day, people blame the attack on the Cherokee Indians, but the Cherokees were actually very peaceful. Although the group of attackers were said to be from many different Indian tribes, the women said they thought they identified one of the white men disguised as Indians, as someone they knew from Alabama. Though the dreadful killers may never be discovered, this tragedy still lives on in the hearts of the townspeople of Jacksonville, Texas.
