Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

If it wasn't already abundantly clear how serious the COVID-19 pandemic is, then this news might serve as a wake-up call: on Monday, the Alamo announced that it would close indefinitely, and the Poteet Strawberry Festival was officially postponed until the fall.

Don't worry — we can all remember the Alamo from the safety of our own homes. Anyone that needs a reminder need only to follow @officialalamo on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
