We started off a very busy wedding weekend with a wedding on Thanksgiving Day, the only day this cute young couple could get everyone together for this very special event. Congratulations to all who were married on this holiday weekend!
San Antonio has announced that fireworks will be allowed this year! The Chamber of Commerce is bringing San Antonio’s largest and longest fireworks spectacular to the skies over downtown for the first annual Stars & Stripes over San Antonio, an Independence Day celebration. Twenty minutes of eye-popping sky explosions will light up the night at our beloved HemisFair Park and will be visible for miles. There will be live music, food, drinks and activities.
The Inn is in a position to be surrounded by fireworks, as Woodlawn Park will also have fireworks and if Ft. Sam has them, these are also visible from the Inn. Combine the holiday with a romantic getaway and you will be seeing fireworks all night. We still have availability, so come on in and make this a memorable Fourth of July!
If you are familiar with San Antonio, then you probably know about Fiesta. For those of you who haven’t heard of it, it’s the biggest, longest party of the year. Events have already begun and there are many more to come. The River Parade was Monday night. The Battle of the Flowers parade on Friday, April 27 means the kids get a day off of school. NIOSA (Night in Old San Antonio) began on Tuesday and will continue throughout the week. And the Fiesta Flambeau Parade is the largest illuminated parade in the nation. But you don’t have to take my word for it, check out a partial schedule of events at http://www.fiesta-sa.org/events/all-events/ and the link below has even more.
Fiesta San Antonio is an 11-day celebration with parades, festivals, art shows, musical performances, games, parties, sports tournaments, and kid-friendly events. What started as a one-day parade in 1891 to commemorate the history of Texas has evolved to over 100 events. http://saevents.com/Events/Events.asp?CatFiestaSA=y
