San Antonio Turns 300!

 

San Antonio is turning 300 years old and San Antonio is gearing up for the huge milestone with a year long celebration. The Tricentennial year kicks off with the New Year's Eve celebration with family friendly music, entertainment, and a fireworks show. The headliners of the night will be Pat Benatar, Neil Giraldo, and REO Speedwagon.

May 1-6 is designated as Commemorative Week to celebrate the exact milestone. May 1, 1718, the Mission San Antonio de Valero (later known as the Alamo) was introduced. San Antonio's five area missions are Texas's only UNESCO World Heritage site and will be at the forefront of the activities.

On top of a celebration, there is a huge drive for educational events during this celebration to include history, arts and culture, and community service that is aimed at getting the San Antonio more involved with local organizations. The 300 group identified community projects and helped match volunteer groups to projects based on need and demand.

For more information to see what events are happening, or how you can get involved, take a moment to check out the 300 website and the efforts that the leader of our great city have put together.
