Popular fitness event Síclovía will be rolling through Southtown on its way to Mission Concepción this Sunday, March 30.
The preceding two Síclovías have seen Broadway Street closed off to traffic so that cyclists and pedestrians could get out and move. The first event attracted 15,000 people, but last year's event saw growth to four times that number with over 65,000.
A new stage work by the Jump-Start Performance Co. called "Tales of Lost Southtown" documents one of San Antonio’s legendary neighborhoods. The production has a preview this Sunday, February 23, at 3 p.m.
“An insight into the quirky and funny, and sometimes disturbing, aspects of the strange characters that live in the Southtown neighborhood," said Erik Bosse, who created the work.
Síclovía has once again shattered its attendance record despite a bout of rain early Sunday morning. 73,000 people came to play in the streets on Sunday, breaking the 65,000 person record set in April.
Since it’s inception in 2011, YMCA President Sandy Morander said San Antonio has improved it’s body-mass index level according to the Centers for Disease Control.
