 It's Fiesta time in San Antonio!
April in Downtown San Antonio
April means Fiesta time in San Antonio! There are plenty of activities to choose from Downtown in April!

Enjoy a healthier, "greener" Fiesta experience this year. Recycling options, healthy food choices, smoke-free events and a variety of environmentally friendly transportation options are available during the celebrations. New this year: take advantage of refillable water bottle stations along the Battle of Flowers Parade route! 

The City's Downtown Tuesday program will be temporarily suspended on Tuesday, April 19th for a Fiesta "siesta." Event parking rates will apply at all City-operated lots and garages. Regular meter rates will also be in effect. Special event and parade attendees are advised that street closures may impact the availability of metered parking in some areas. The Downtown Tuesday program will continue on Tuesday, April 26th . Downtown Tuesday offers locals and visitors great incentives, such as free parking and discounts, when they visit downtown restaurants, bars, museums and other attractions. For more information, check out the new Downtown Tuesday website and follow Downtown Tuesday on Facebook.
