Independence Day at the Alamo
300 Alamo Plaza
Mon 7/4, 9am-4pm

Although from a completely different historical event, the Alamo is still a powerful symbol of the struggle for independence, which makes it an appropriate backdrop for an Independence Day celebration. The event will host readings of the Declaration of Independence, historical reenactments and even musket firing demonstrations. If that isn't enough to win you over, there will also be free paletas handed out at the Alamo Hall Patio. Music will be provided throughout the day by Bexar Bones Trombone Quartet. 

Fourth of July Artisan River Walk Boutique  
San Antonio River Walk
Fri 7/1-Mon 7/4, 11am-8pm 

What's the Fourth of July without some handmade memorabilia? Starting this Friday, the River Walk will be home to some of San Antonio's finest local artisans selling special pieces of jewelry, pottery and fine art. Take a stroll along the San Antonio River this weekend and stop to talk to these artisans who are all eager to share information about their respective crafts. Free artistic expression is an important liberty we enjoy as Americans, so show some support for local art. A little culture will be good for you. 

Freedom Fest 2016
514 W. Commerce St. 
Sat 7/2-Mon 7/4, 12pm-8pm

Celebrate your freedom to mercilessly shovel tripa tacos down your throat this weekend in San Antonio's historic Market Square. The annual Freedom Fest celebration will be like round two of Fiesta in Market Square with all the trademark food, aguas frescas and micheladas. Luckily you've had a solid two months to recover and prepare. There will also be chingos of live music by popular San Antonio musicians including Whiskey 2 Step, The Chris Saucedo Band and the Palacios Brothers. Make this holiday weekend count like a true San Antonian would.
