Arneson River Theatre

Music, art and even more music — the weekend’s here.

First off, head downtown for a music and dance event that Mike De La Garza says has been popular for more than 60 years at the historic Arneson Theater: Fiesta Noche Del Rio.

“You will hear music and experience dance and costumery from various parts of the world, including Mexico, Argentina, Spain and Texas,” De La Garza said.

As always with the Arneson, the stage is on the other side of the river, creating unanticipated fun for barge-bound tourists.
