Kidcation Week San Antonio 2016 (& Giveaway!)

Are you looking for something fun to do before the kids go back to school? Look no further than San Antonio’s 4th annual Kidcation Week!

During this special week, the Alamo City rolls out the red carpet for its youngest visitors and residents, and transforms into a citywide playground for kids of all ages. Kidcation Week, presented by Our Kids Magazine, allows families to create lifelong memories and have one last summer hurrah before the kids head back to school.

Kidcation Week kicks off today, Saturday August 6th, at Hemisfair’s Yanaguana Gardens. The Kidcation Kick Off Event, held from 9am-2pm, is an event that you do not want to miss. This free kick off event is open to the general public and will feature live music, free activities, balloon artistry, face painting, a bouncy house, games and prizes at the heart of San Antonio’s newest landscaped outdoor wonderland. Coolers are not permitted but there will be food vendors and snacks will be available to purchase.
