Trip to San Antonio

San Antonio is the halfway point between Dallas (where we live) & Mission (where I am from). This past weekend, we met my parents there. We had a wonderful time at the River Walk. After our boat tour, we walked over to La Villita. La Villita was San Antonio's first neighborhood, it's now a wonderful collection of art galleries, craft shops, clothing stores, restaurants and an outdoor theater. We arrived just in time to watch the Fiesta Noche Del Rio which is a show at an outdoor theater featuring dances from Mexico, Spain, Texas & Argentina.

The entire show is sponsored by the Alamo Kiwanis Club which donates all of the proceeds to children's charities. The show is recognized as the longest regularly-playing outdoor musical production in the US. Kiwanis has sponsored this show as a fundraiser since 1958. Needless to say the show was spectacular, the few pictures I took don't even do it justice. I highly recommend checking out their website for some wonderful videos and music .

Here are my dinky snapshots:

It's hard to appreciate the uniqueness of the theater in this picture. The stage is actually across the river from where the audience sits.

Here's a close up picture of one of the dancers.

Thanks for stopping by. For more information about visiting San Antonio, go to this website.
