- After two years of not taking place due to COVID-19, the Fiesta Battle of Flowers parade is coming back again on Friday, April 8, but this year the parade route is a bit different. If you’re lucky enough to get the day off, you may want to attend the parade celebration, which “draws crowds of more than 550,000 each year” and is “the founding event of the city’s annual celebration” during Fiesta. Tickets for the event range from $20-$35. For more parade details and information visit: (mySA)
- After almost three years, “The San Antonio-set animated series “Undone,” is returning for a second season” on Friday, April 29 on Amazon Prime. The show, which is set in the Alamo City, was created by Bojack Horseman, Raphael Bob-Waksberg and San Antonio native, Kate Purdy. The show is about a 28-year-old woman named Alma who lives in San Antonio and discovers that “she has a unique relationship to time after a near death experience” and as a result, “she develops new insights into her father’s death.” For more details on the series and the cast, as well as clips from the show, please visit: (mySA)
- A development agreement is being negotiated by “The Alamo Regional Mobility Authority” along with an Elon Musk firm. The proposed agreement is to build “an underground transportation loop between downtown and the San Antonio International Airport.” During an interview with Texas Public Radio’s “The Source” live call-in program on Wednesday, April 6, questions were asked during a discussion on the proposed project. Among those questions were “What do we know so far about the proposed project in San Antonio and others like it across the country? How do Boring Co.’s tunnel loops work and how are they built? What factors need to be considered? What are the pros and cons? How could these kinds of projects influence the transportation mobility landscape in Texas and beyond?” Radio show guests included Eric Killelea, technology reporter for the San Antonio Express-News; David Schrank, Ph.D., senior research scientist for the Mobility Analysis Program at the Texas A&M Transportation Institute; and Lizan Gilbert, PE, vice president of Hill International and member of the ASCE Texas Section‘s Government Affairs Committee.
