You can enjoy the unique art of short films. Meet a heroic pilot who saved her plane and passengers. Or take a spooky tour of San Antonio's sexy past. The weekend’s here, and there’s plenty to do.

Music, art and even more music — the weekend’s here.

First off, head downtown for a music and dance event that Mike De La Garza says has been popular for more than 60 years at the historic Arneson Theater: Fiesta Noche Del Rio.

“You will hear music and experience dance and costumery from various parts of the world, including Mexico, Argentina, Spain and Texas,” De La Garza said.

As always with the Arneson, the stage is on the other side of the river, creating unanticipated fun for barge-bound tourists.

On Fridays, we give you a preview of some of the weekend's most interesting events. This week, it's a little different, with an emphasis on the last event.  

First off, on Saturday at the Institute of Texan Cultures Buddhist monks are creating a community mandala out of colorful sands. It's called The Mystical Arts of Tibet, and promises to be both fascinating and beautiful. Then on Saturday night, Texas original Billy Joe Shaver is playing a great live outdoor venue outside of Boerne, the Round Up.
