Tricentennial Officials: Mass Transit Is the Ticket for New Year’s Eve Party
Thousands are expected to fill Hemisfair Park on New Year’s Eve as San Antonio begins celebrating its Tricentennial with the Celebrate 300 kickoff party. The event’s organizers have a message for would-be partygoers: Leave your car behind.
Visitors to the $1.1 million event can plan on hearing performances by eight musical acts, participating in family-oriented activities, and seeing a fireworks show that will illuminate the Tower of the Americas. What they shouldn’t plan on is finding a place to park, said Carlos Contreras, interim CEO of the Tricentennial Commission, on Wednesday.
