Every event is a learning experience, if you can see it.
However big, however small, once it’s done you have to take time to regroup and review. What worked, what might need work, what people said, and always, how to make sure this event reaches and helps the people who need it most.
Now that this year’s Snowball Run has wrapped up, its organizers will be doing all of that and figuring out how to build on the successes of three years.
I know it always feels a little weird to talk about winter events in San Antonio. When you have to scrape the frost off your windshields before you drive to work in the morning, only to go home that same afternoon with the windows rolled down and the A/C turned off, no one can blame you for thinking that winter is just an urban legend you heard about that one time.
But we’re a resourceful lot. And if we want snow, we’ll make it happen one way or another.
If you’re looking for a fun and family friendly Halloween event, of course you can count on Morgan’s Wonderland to be hosting one.
This Saturday, from 5:00-9:00pm, the park will be hosting its annual “More Delightful Than Frightful” celebration. The treat is that you get to share the holiday in a safe, fun, and inclusive environment. There really is no trick.
Of course, admission is only $5.00, or FREE with a donation of three non-perishable food items. All the food donations, and a portion of the proceeds, will go to the San Antonio Food Bank.
Great fun, great place, great cause. Every reason to suit up, show up, and spread the word.
Thanks as always for your support – hope to see you there!
Opportunities are now available for homeschooled teens to retirees – and all ages in between – to perform in our children’s theatre educational outreach program throughout the school year!!

We do offer a per show stipend and a bus to travel to and from each show, but you must have reliable transportation to get to the park. Those interested need to be available Tuesdays and Thursdays during the day.
Those interested must have a willingness, an understanding, and a passion for sharing the Morgan’s Wonderland mission!!

Last night Morgan’s Wonderland held its annual Free to Soar gala (which also included a birthday party for Morgan, and a Bruno Martian flash mob by the students at The Academy at Morgan’s Wonderland). I wasn’t there for the event itself, but I got to sit in on rehearsals the night before, and I’m still going through the photos I shot.
I had a great time at the rehearsals, so I can imagine how much fun the full event was. It’s just so much fun working with everyone in the Wonderland, TX community.
But it’s a lot more than fun. It’s also so incredibly rewarding. I’ve shared not a few words about the experience, and I’m thankful for everyone who has supported them. More importantly, I’m thankful for everyone who has supported the park and the school.
But for all the words I’ve written, it’s the visuals that tell the story far better. So, if you’d like to see, REALLY see, what it means to support Wonderland, TX, watch this video:
That is what you’re supporting. That’s what all the staff and teachers and administrators are supporting. That’s what I’m supporting.
And I’m honored to be a part of it.
If you’d like to be a part of it too (and I’ve had a few people ask), please message me for details. I’ll try to help if I can.
Thanks as always, and hope to see you in Wonderland!
