A Night In Old San Antonio
The Antonio Conservation Society presents, A Night in Old San Antonio (NIOSA) a four-night fun event. Every year more than a 100,000 people participate in the event, which is a part of the Fiesta San Antonio. The village is segregated into fifteen different cultural areas during the four night celebration. Each group represents San Antonian culture in various forms of food, clothing, music and entertainment, a feast for all your senses! The four nights are not restricted to fun alone, but they help in preserving the culture of San Antonio and educating the future generations about the rich heritage.
You call $12 admission fee affordable? I can afford it but i'm old-fashioned I guess, I think that is way too expensive. Then you've got food and drink on top of that, plus a $10 or $15 for a place to park. It was very crowded with no place to sit. Parked on a street, checked first to make sure no signs saying no parking or event parking only. There were none. But got a 35 dollar parking ticket. Later, after I had parked they put up barricades on the street I parked on saying no parking there. That wasn't there at the time I arrived and parked.. I won't be back to Night in Old San Antonio.
This is a great event to attend. Wonderful food & entertainment and all for a very affordable price! Go on Tuesday or Wednesday to avoid the larger crowds. The earlier the better, try to get there when the gates open at 5:30 PM. Use VIA park and ride instead of fighting for a parking space downtown. Be sure to try the Fried Cheesecake in Main Street USA and the French Pastries in French Quarter. They are both to die for!
