HOUSTON -- Booming cannons, cracking musket fire, thundering hooves, and battle cries will resound across the San Jacinto Battleground on Saturday, April 26, as hundreds of history re-enactors recreate the events leading up to Texas winning its independence at the decisive Battle of San Jacinto, where Gen. Sam Houston led his Texian soldiers to victory over the Mexican army.

This dramatic battle re-enactment at 3 p.m. is the centerpiece of the admission-free San Jacinto Day Festival, held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site in La Porte, surrounding the San Jacinto Monument. Sponsored by the San Jacinto Museum of History, Texas Parks & Wildlife, and the San Jacinto Volunteers re-enactors, the festival is a full day of music, entertainment, food, games, and fun set amid living history.

The San Jacinto Monument is open all day. Visitors can ride the elevator to the top for a panoramic view of the festivities, explore the special exhibit, watch a Texas history movie, and tour the hundreds of museum pieces on display for a modest admission fee. For more information, visit
