San Antonio Museum of Art (SAMA):
The San Antonio Museum of Art has made the decision to postpone this weekend’s family day to Sunday, August 2.
This decision was made in response to the sharp increase of COVID-19 cases in San Antonio. In an attempt to keep staff, volunteers, vendors and visitors safe the San Antonio Museum of Art is choosing to hold off on the event for the time being.
On Sunday, July 5 from Noon to 3 p.m., the San Antonio Museum of Art (SAMA) will host its Family Day See + Do, a free event for SAISD students and their families. A perfect addition to the holiday weekend, families will have an opportunity to meet Pegasus and other mythical animals as they explore the realms of fantasy in this no-contact, physically distanced family day.
Families will have the opportunity to invent their own magical animal and draw it on scratch art paper, sculpt a multi-headed hydra, and enjoy a self-paced scavenger hunt. The Family Day See + Do has been generously underwritten by the Charity Ball Association of San Antonio and the Faye L. and William L. Cowden Charitable Association.

The popular San Antonio bakery will be open to visitors this Fourth of July at both locations so guests can stop in and treat themselves to decadent pan dulce while taking a break from the heat. Guests can also enjoy signature menu items at each restaurant such as the La Panaderia Patty Melt, a unique twist on the Texas favorite.
