Fiesta Fantasias Set To Rock Hemisfair Park Beginning Wednesday

Apr 22, 2014

Fiesta continues, and this week Hemisfair Park will be alive with music for an event called Fiesta Fantasias.

"Fiesta Fantasias is a free event: We’ll have music, food, beverages, arts and crafts, and the only laser light show set to music during Fiesta," said Judi Deleon, who heads the San Antonio Parks Foundation.

"The event takes place Wednesday, Thursday and Friday; 5 p.m. doors open until 10:30 in the evening.  Did I mention it was free?" she said.

I asked her to tell me more about the synchronized laser light show.

“The laser show is going to be up against Magik Theater," she said. "The Fairmont has been gracious enough to allow us to use them as a backdrop."

That told me that the show was all oriented to the park's west side, at the Alamo Street entrance to Hemisfair.

I asked about the Parks Foundation giving away a Les Paul Guitar.

“Yes! We will be giving away a Les Paul guitar. It retails for about $1,400 or $1,500. Sam Ash is our sponsor for this," she said. "You can register to win from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. And right after 9 p.m. we will be giving the guitar away. You must be present to win.”

As to the music, it’s almost all rock 'n' roll.

"So we definitely have the music covered," she said, "and everything else that goes with a great fiesta event."
