Celebrate San Antonio

When: Thu., Dec. 31, 6 p.m.-12:30 a.m. 2015

Those who suffer from enochlophobia (fear of crowds) might want to steer clear of Celebrate San Antonio, a New Year’s Eve tradition that routinely draws upward of 250,000 revelers to Hemisfair Park. Presented by the San Antonio Parks Foundation and billed as “the biggest free New Year’s Eve celebration and fireworks extravaganza in Texas,” the fiesta keeps the masses entertained with festival fare, carnival games and live music on three stages (from Top 40 cover band The Klocks to progressive tejano accordion queen Eva Ybarra) leading up to an impressive pyrotechnic show courtesy of Valero.

Price: Free
