Fun in San Antonio
Did we mention that ALPS is during “Fiesta” week? Fiesta events are taking place the same weekend as our meeting!  If you are planning to come early, there are events on Friday – Oyster Bake, Taste of New Orleans – then on Saturday and Sunday there are food and crafts festivals, including the Southwest School of Art’s annual juried art and craft show. Events are within walking distance of the Westin Hotel. Several food festivals are great dinner options… If you plan to stay longer, Monday is the River Parade which passes the Westin Hotel.

Make this a weekend trip to enjoy Texas in springtime. Bring your guests to the San Antonio River Walk which is a verdant oasis of cypress-lined paved paths, arched stone bridges and lush landscapes. Visit

Registration closed Friday, April 13. Please contact Crystal Healey to RSVP.
