Fiesta posts by San Antonio bloggers and the Weekly Link Up for April 14 - 20, 2014

Fiesta is in full swing! Here’s a look at what San Antonio bloggers are writing about it, including reviews of favorite events, Fiesta guides for beginners, DIY Fiesta decor, and insider tips for the best ways to enjoy the Alamo City’s biggest celebration.

New to San Antonio and wondering what this Fiesta thing is all about? Melanie, with Que Means What, has the rundown in her post, Hablas FIESTA? Beginner’s Guide to FIESTA San Antonio.

Kelly, with Alamo City Moms Blog, has a plan for keeping Fiesta frugal and Brooke has a guide to family Fiesta fun.

Aimee, who blogs at House of Fauci’s, shares some of her family’s favorite Fiesta events: Fiesta de los Reyes at Market Square, Oyster Bake, and the King William Fair.

Half the fun of Fiesta is making your own decorations. Haeley, with Design Improvised, shows us how to make a Fiesta wreath and Alvina’s DIY steps teach us to make colorful cascarones to crack over unsuspecting revelers.

Garrett Heath, who blogs at SA Flavor, writes a daily series throughout Fiesta for the Rivard Report which includes info on upcoming events, tips, and gorgeous photography.

A few years ago, Denise wrote on her blog, San Antonio Tourist, about the quintessential store for all of your decorative Fiesta goods.

My recent post of FREE, family-friendly Fiesta events is sure to save you big bucks and you can get daily updates on Fiesta festivities in my Fiesta San Antonio Guide on Flipboard:
