More than 250 people packed the San Antonio Garden Center on June 21 to give their input on latest Alamo plan proposal.

Since 1993, URBAN-15 has been an official Fiesta Presenting Member Organization, hosting an annual masquerade ball and dance party called Incognito. In previous years we have held this event as an evening, ticketed formal at the Villita Assembly Hall and other spaces around the city. This year, we feel that our Presa Real neighborhood needs a Fiesta event of its own to celebrate the artists and families from this unique community, and are excited to announce that in 2017 we will hold Incognito as a masked street party for the neighborhood.
