(Ticketed Event)
Mark Twain declared San Antonio, "one of the four unique cities in the U.S.", referring to the confluence of cultures shaping it’s character and there is no better way to experience a city than to walk or run along its historic pathways. Our route will take us past the quaint plazas of La Villita, or little village, one of San Antonio’s original neighborhoods and now home to shops and galleries. The path takes you on the outskirts of our Southtown Neighborhood packed with unique restaurants, shops and historic homes. As you pass by Hemisphere Park you will find yourself gazing at the unique architecture of the Texas Pavilion and The 750-foot Tower of the Americas which were central "theme structures" of the 1968 HemisFair (The San Antonio World’s Fair). Enjoy your morning run through our diverse culture.
A portion of the funds are donated to Healthy Smiles, Healthy Children.

Alright, alright, alright! Mask up AAPD revelers, and come on down to the Delarosa Krewe Ball! Let’s turn up the volume on this year’s lavish affair, all with the same sophistication and elegance of past but infused by the irresistible spirit of our President, Rob Delarosa.  The Spirit of Bacchus at Mardi Gras takes over this grand May fête, with Carnival sights, tastes and sounds, while paying homage to the Greco-Roman roots of this grand feast day. Hosted at the magnificent riverside Tobin Center for Performing Arts, this venue in itself a dazzling architectural treasure transformed for a modern day world class performance center.

Every ball needs its mask, and don’t forget to bring your best gown and dancing shoes … because tonight’s festivities includes New Orleans’s own amazing Bucktown Allstars, a multi-year winner of Gambit Reader’s Poll, "Best Band that Doesn’t Fit Any of these Categories" with raspy vocals, rollicking piano, and a corrupt horn section fueling the unorthodox mix of second line funk and Motown soul, the main ingredients that have entertained thousands of hip-shaking fans across Louisiana and the country for 23 years strong and going.
