San Antonians can enjoy live music, great food and local history from the comfort of their cars at this year's Brackenridge Park Conservancy fundraiser, "A Promenade Through the Park."

On Wednesday, March 24, attendees will wend their way through the historic park in a safe and socially distanced drive, which includes portions of the park that are no longer open to the public. The route begins at the Tuesday Musical Club, goes along the trail of Alpine Drive, and finishes through the Low Water Crossing.

Guests will be provided a pre-made gourmet picnic meal from The RK Group and enjoy live entertainment from The Dirty River Jazz Band.

"The Brackenridge Park Conservancy is excited to celebrate the legacy of Brackenridge Park,” Lynn Osborne Bobbitt, executive director of Brackenridge Park Conservancy, said in a release. “This immersive driving experience will allow guests and their families to drive through closed parts of the park, reminiscing on past park days and creating new ones.”

Tickets are $350, and include two meals. Tickets and additional information are available at the Brackenridge Park Conservancy's website.
