It’s going to get a little crazy this Saturday,¬†with¬†some 200,000 or more people¬†converging on downtown and carrying on from¬†morning to night.¬†¬†

If you’re heading down there,¬†or¬†just passing through,¬†have a plan. Several streets will be closed. And buses on a¬†dozen¬†routes will be rerouted¬†throughout the day.¬†

First up,¬†an annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade will thump and blast its way¬†past the Alamo,¬†starting at 11 a.m. Then the¬†party will¬†shift to the River Walk for an afternoon of dancing and music at¬†the Arneson River Theatre¬†and a 3 p.m.¬†river parade.

Later, throngs of artists, performers, musicians and fans will light up La Villita and HemisFair Park for Luminaria: Arts Night in San Antonio, and hang out past midnight. The celebration highlights Contemporary Art Month.  

So if you want to be mobile in downtown San Antonio this Saturday, you might have to get a little creative. Good luck!
