Last night I went to the Luminaria event in Hemisfair park in downtown San Antonio and it was a ton of fun. The event started with some very positive speeches by the folks who organized the event and the Mayor discussed his vision for San Antonio and ultimately what all our hopes are for the up coming years. The rackers had been planning a flashmob for a few weeks and it was really cool to see the crowd’s reaction when they started dancing up in front of the stage.
We arrived a bit early with our friends Heather and Wiz so we could make sure we found parking and a spot to see the opening ceremonies. We had plenty of time when we arrived so we got some food and drinks and headed over to the stage. Our Artists from our sister city in Taiwan came over and created the awesome gateway you see to the right. The whole night had a great feeling of energy and inspiration and we all had a blast.
We decided to end the night with the 3d building display. My father sent me a link a couple weeks back of one that had been done in Portugal. I decided to capture a video of the performance and it was pretty cool to see.
