Join TPR At Fest Of Tails

Mar 1, 2018

Fest of Tails, now in its 12th year, is a free family-friendly kite festival and dog fair! This ever popular event is set for Saturday, March 17, 2018 from 9 am - 4 pm at McAllister Park.

Celebrate the arrival of spring with family fun in the park! This event welcomes kite and dog enthusiasts from near and far. Dogs of all sizes and breeds, along with a sky full of kites, fill this day of fun! All guests are encouraged to bring a blanket and lawn chair to watch the spectacular sky views and to enjoy meeting new furry friends.

Attention is finally being paid to reports of sexual harassment and abuse suffered by many at the hands of those in power. The #MeToo movement spread beyond Harvey Weinstein’s public reckoning, and into the halls of business, government, and even public media. It’s long overdue. As employees, students, and citizens navigate these new waters, many still have legal and ethical questions. At this Dare To Listen event, we’ll convene a panel to talk about the sociological and legal aspects of the #MeToo movement, and about those squishy gray areas that exist in some minds.

There’s a saying in Texas that goes, “if you don’t like the weather in Texas, wait five minutes.” Despite San Antonio’s reputation for long hot summers, there is an abundance of interesting weather in the Lone Star State, everything from ice storms to hurricanes and even the occasional snowfall. At this Think Science event, recorded February 16, 2018, you’ll hear from two experts in the field about our unique weather patterns, how predictions are made, and what climate change will mean for South Texas over the next 20 years.

If there was one consistent comment I heard from both judges and audience members alike at this year's SOUNDS LIKE KPAC talent competition, it's that the music, and and writing were of exceptionally high quality this year. Tallying the scores during intermission, it was clear this was a tight race. At the end of the afternoon, students from Ronald Reagan High School, Health Careers High School, Clark High School, and one local homeschool student all took first place awards at SOUNDS LIKE KPAC, held January 28, 2018 at McAllister Auditorium on the campus of San Antonio College.
