A Day in the Life of Morgan’s Wonderland

Joy the Butterfly and friend.Spring Break was just a couple of weeks ago, and once again, Morgan’s Wonderland was there to help kids of all ages celebrate with a whole week of Music, Mutts, Magic, & More.

I got to visit the park on the last day of the celebration and enjoy some of what had been going on all week. Here’s the day in review:

Let It Snow… Or Make It Snow

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 homeĀ 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!

The InDoctornation Begins

When I went to Gallifrey One earlier this year (and I just found out this week that I’ll be going back in 2016!), I had the pleasure of joining a contingent of local Whovians. So we had some great conversations on the flights to L.A. and back.

And we were on our way there when Ross Ruediger (who, besides being a Doctor Who fan, is a writer and filmmaker – and for the last couple of seasons, his recaps on Vulture have been essential reading after every episode) told us about his next project.

And I was hooked.

Labor Day at Morgan’s Wonderland

If you still need ideas for your Labor Day weekend, Morgan’s Wonderland has a few.

The park’s Labor Day Celebration will be happening on Monday, and (as the flyer to your right promises) features appearances by:

  • Animal actor Trinity
  • Miss Greater Helotes Texas Teen 2015, Analee Hemann
  • Steven O. Sellers, performing with his ukelele and Party Time Puppets (and Great Day SA offered a wonderful sneak preview of their show)
  • and Katy McKenzie

Plus, of course, all the park’s great rides and attractions will be there.

It’s going to be a fun day, so bring your family. Invite your friends. Tell your neighbors. Share it with your peeps and tweeps.

Thanks as always for your support, and hope to see you there!
