The Cascarone Lives On

Filed in by Angela Bartels | April 29, 2011 11:32 am

Fiesta is over. Easter is over. But the Cascarone lives on – on your iPhone or iPad.  Not sure what a Cascarone[1] is? It’s the shell of an egg filled with confetti, painted in bright colors and closed with a piece of tissue paper. It’s a hefty task to make Cascarones that only end up cracked on someone’s head. It’s a San Antonio tradition, used to celebrate during our famous week of Fiesta[2] and on Easter.  They are fun to make, to crack but not necessarily fun to clean up.

Our very own Racker, Garrett Heath, came up with the Cascarone app[3] so you can crack Cascarones all year long and most importantly, not make a mess. So if you want to crack an egg on someone’s head but don’t want to make a mess, download the Cascarone app and get cracking.

With much success, Garrett’s app has been mentioned in the Wall Street Journal and San Antonio Express News.
