Did you ever wonder what it is like to ride in the Texas Cavalier's River Parade at the height of Fiesta? You can find out by watching the video that NOWCastSA streamed from aboard the San Antonio Library Foundation's pirate-themed barge in the parade. You'll get a behind-the-scenes look before the parade and then a view from the barge. You can see it all from any Internet-enabled computer at our Kyte channel here. You can also see the conversation and chat in the window next to the video player.
