It's Official: Fiesta San Antonio 2009 Has Begun!

By April 16, 2009

Even with the carnival starting a day early to show off their shiny new wares, the official kickoff to Fiesta San Antonio 2009 is today, Thursday April 16th.

If you were worried about rain for the kickoff down at Alamo Plaza, then there are still plenty of events this weekend that you can attend that will be just as much fun, maybe more depending on what you like.

First is the Oyster Bake, a Fiesta tradition that will take place Friday (5-11:00 p.m.) and Saturday all day from 11:00 a.m.-11:00 p.m. Tickets are $20 at the gate, or $16 pre-sale at any HEB.

A Taste of New Orleans is another Fiesta Favorite that should not be overlooked. This year's event will be at the Sunken Garden Theater, with tickets going for $10 pre-sale at HEB or $12 at the gate. Here is the schedule:

Friday, April 17: 4:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Saturday, April 18: 12:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Sunday, April 19: 12:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Stay tuned for more Fiesta 2009 updates!
