In observation of Mexican Independence Day, the Asociación de Charros de San Antonio hosts an afternoon charreada (often likened to a Mexican rodeo) comprising an array of competitive roping and riding events, including el Paso de la Muerte, “The Pass of Death.” Designed to promote Mexican culture and preserve its history, the charreada is an official event of the City of San Antonio’s Diez y Seis de Septiembre Commission and will showcase some of San Antonio’s finest charros. The organization’s second-largest event of the year, the Día de Independencia Charreada typically draws guests from near and far, and kicks off with pre-show entertainment from ballet folklórico dancers and mariachis along with food and drinks available for purchase. $5-$10, 3-6pm (gates at 2pm) Sun, Charro Ranch, 6126 Padre Drive, (210) 225-2287, sacharros.org. — KV
