Every year since 1925 the Alamo Mission Chapter of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas has staged its annual Pilgrimage to the Alamo—a memorial tribute to the Alamo heroes and the heritage of Texas. A solemn wreath-bearing procession of historic, civic, patriotic, military and school groups departs from Municipal Auditorium and walks silently to the Alamo. Simultaneously, an authoritative voice intones the names of the Alamo defenders from inside the Alamo walls, making them resound throughout Alamo Plaza. Following the procession and placing of the colorful floral offerings on the Alamo greensward, a brief memorial service takes place. The Fiesta Military Coordinator delivers the Pilgrimage address, and the sounding of Taps ends the ceremony. Free event. For more information call (210) 824-5884.
