Saturday, April 25, San Jacinto Battleground will celebrate Texas' Independence from Mexico. At the San Jacinto Monument, there will be an historical battle reenactment. From 10am-6pm you can experience what life was like for the Texians in those days. You can also watch the 18 minute battle, the Runaway Scrape, be reenacted along with narration. There is no admission into the festival. Fees will apply to ride the elevator up the monument. This is a great way to spend family time together learning about history.
