Event Description: The Fiesta Especial Regalia Run 5K & Parade, whether participants choose to compete in the Royalty Run 5K, walk in the 1-mile fun run or ride on a float in the parade. The route is lined in shade trees with pleasant views as the course wraps around the golf course. Participants are encouraged to kick back and relax after the run as a parade winds through the city streets featuring a colorful display of the sights and sounds of Fiesta®! The Parade that follows the run is comprised of disability service organizations and those they serve. These organizations are invited to participate at no cost with a float, walking, groups, cars or carts.

This is one of the few 5K's in San Antonio where the runners and walkers  get personal interaction with the individual's impacted by their participation on the day of the event. Runners, walkers and all the floats are lined up in the street together creating a very visible impression of why everyone is there. 

Program Description: Fiesta Especial® is an educational outreach program of disABILITYsa. Fiesta Especial® is also an official Fiesta® San Antonio experience created for children and adults with physical, cognitive and developmental difference and the family and friends who love them. Fiesta Especial® creates inclusive and educational experiences engaging individuals with disabilities in the culture, diversity and celebrations of Fiesta® through community instruction and training. Individuals with disabilities and our community are invited to take part in the Royalty Court, 5K& Parade and Celebration day experiences.

Fiesta Especial®  programs are organized and hosted by disABILITYsa in partnership with Fiesta® San Antonio, The Fiesta®  Carnival (Wade Shows) and the City of Windcrest.

Proceeds from the Royalty Run 5K support charitable, non-profit programs but improve the lives od children and adults with disabilities in our local community throughout the year. Proceeds from the event will provide educational outreach, residential services, day program and recreational activities for children and adults with special needs.
