Fiesta: NIOSA

Release Date: 2009-04-22

The San Antonio Conservation Society presents this long-running tradition at La Villita, and it’s known as the largest historic-preservation festival in the nation — not that Northside teenagers looking to get drunk would know about that. Basically, this is the densest, most crowded event of Fiesta. For some it’s the highlight of the week, for others it’s Nightmare in Old San Antonio. Which side are you on? $12, 5:30-10:30pm, La Villita, 418 Villita St., for info
