    What days are supposed to be good?

    I think I'm gonna be going down from Dallas on a Wednesday and party til Sunday. Any recommendations on spots to hit up?

    Last year I went and I was at Joe's Volcano Friday, and Planeta on Saturday. The market stays packed!

    For your own safety: don't go to Joe's Volcano this year, or ever again. The fiesta carnival is just as bad, at least at night.

    The answer to your question depends on what weekend you are coming:

    1st weekend (April 16-19):
    Thursday, April 16 - Nothing
    Friday, April 17 - A Taste of New Orleans @ Sunken Gardens Brackenridge Park
    Saturday, April 18 - St. Mary's University Oyster Bake. And no, you need not to like oysters to enjoy this one.
    Sunday, April 19 - Nothing good.


    2nd weekend (April 23-26) - *******MY RECOMMENDATION********
    Thursday - NIOSA (Night in Old San Antonio) at La Villita Downtown (Best Official Fiesta Event Hands Down)
    Friday - Take in the Battle of Flowers parade if you are coming with family. If not, skip this and conserve your energy for that night. I would hit upMarketsquare for a while then go to the spot wherever DJ Casper will be spinning at.
    Saturday - King William Fair (Lots of people sleep on this event)
    Sunday - San Antonio Sneaks Up 3 - F Fiesta, this is the Best Event on Earth.

    I have to agree with UCASTA, but I'd hit up NIOSA all week and probably skip thurs(that's me personally),saturady night is also the Flambue parade atnight, don't hit up anything outside of downtown except oysterbake at St.Marys. Planeta is shutdown

    If you like massive crowds, and a high dose of claustrophobia, go to NIOSA on Thursday night. If not go on Tuesday or Wednesday to enjoy the food/atmosphere.

    ^^^both. you'll find some good food vendors selling the usual fajitas, gorditas, flaquitas, flautas, tripas, aqua frescas at the market square day andnight. you'll find some of this at niosa and a mix of others like brauts and kraut, chicken on a stick (FTW), maria's tortillas (FTW), egg rolls, andon and on. i reccomend doing both events.

    I'll def be catching all you fools at the Sneaks Up 3.

    I went two years ago, and it was straight.

    This year for Fiesta I'm going to be more prepared. N I def won't recommend wearing hot kicks to the market. It is PACKED! and they will get scuffed upbad.

    N I appreciate the little calendar up there, good lookin out.
