(April 15, 2010)--The annual Fiesta UTSA celebration will continue as scheduled with modifications in consideration of possible inclement weather. The event is set for 11 a.m.-3 p.m., Friday, April 16. Come enjoy the food, fun and entertainment at Sombrilla Plaza on the Main Campus. UTSA's annual official Fiesta San Antonio event is not just for UTSA students -- the family-friendly event is free and open to the public.

Fiesta royalty including King Antonio and El Rey Feo (The Ugly King) will arrive at 1 p.m. Student organizations will sponsor food and activity booths at Sombrilla Plaza. Proceeds from the booths benefit UTSA student organizations.

This year's celebration features music by Loomis and the Lust, who recently won MTVu's best "Freshman" video in December for their "Bright Red Cords" video, now on rotation on MTVu. Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to enjoy lunch at Sombrilla Plaza.

One of the nation's premier festivals, Fiesta San Antonio is April 15-25. The 10-day, citywide, fun-filled, multicultural, family-oriented celebration includes more than 100 events and is the biggest party and greatest community benefit in Texas.
