San Antonio, Texas

A beautiful open air theatre, with the San Antonio River winding between the stage and the audience.

–The bridge in the background is also commonly used as an element in the performances. To the left of the bridge, at the end of the terraces, is a sign indicating the way to La Villita, a restored historical section of the old San Antonio, now mainly shops and restaurants.

This postcard dates from the 1960s.

      There are several festivals throughout the year in San Antonio, but the one you are likely referring to is the Texas Folklife Festival which happens the first week of June. Since this is past for the year, you would best find more information by searching for ‘San Antonio Folklife festival 2015’ for exact dates and event schedules.
