Weekend Events You Don't Want To Miss

Lots to do In South Texas this weekend. Here are a few ideas for you to consider. First off, Saturday morning head to the west side for the Street Museum unveiling.

“What started first as maybe thirty or forty photos has grown into over a hundred photo banners.”

Esperanza Peace and Justice Center’s Saakred is talking about the Street Museum, called that because there are no locked doors.

“They’re installed on walls and fences all over the west side of San Antonio.”

They’re unveiling the most recent ones tomorrow morning.

“It starts at ten. From there we are inviting the community to go on a walking tour.”

Then hit I-10 and head west to Kerrville where they’re unveiling new and re-furbished parks along the Guadalupe. What’ll you get to do there?  Here's Parks Director Malcolm Matthews.

“They’re obviously going to be able to use four miles of river trail, now that it’s continuous all the way from the Riverside Nature Center all the way to Kerrville Schreiner Park. We’ve got a new interactive fountain feature that families will be able to utilize. In several locations we’re going to have a concessionaire that will rent kayaks, tubes and bicycles.”

There’s even a brand new Dog Park. Now back to San Antonio’s historic Main Plaza. The Saga has been projected on San Fernando Cathedral for a year now, and on Saturday night musicians playing for the original animation will play in front of San Fernando.

“The mariachi group Corazon de San Antonio, myself…”

That’s Tish Hinojosa.

“And Flaco Jimenez.”

And then everyone will watch The Saga afterwards.

“I’m going to have a blast.”

As no doubt, will thousands of San Antonians.
