What's happening this weekend

A look at some events around town in San Antonio

SAN ANTONIO - Six Flags Fiesta Texas is celebrating it's 20th year and there are some new thrills in store.

This year, the park introduces the sky screamer, a 200-foot tall swing ride where riders reach speed of up to 40 miles per hour. 

To celebrate the anniversary, anyone who is 20-years-old can get in free on opening day, this Saturday.

And for everyone else, tickets will be offered at a special price all weekend long of $19.92, the year the park opened. Click here for tickets.

We are getting closer to Fiesta 2012, and this weekend, Miss Fiesta will be crowned. 

The scholarship pageant happens Saturday at 7 p.m. at the Charline McCombs Empire Theatre.

Tickets are $25 for adults and $10 for kids, and are available from the Empire Theatre box office.

Siclovia returns to San Antonio for the second time, and this year, it will have a Fiesta flavor.

A stretch of Broadway from Brackenridge Park to McCullough will be closed to traffic Sunday from 10 a.m.- 3 p.m. Bikers and pedestrians are welcome to take over the street.

Event organizers are encouraging participants to decorate their bikes or wear fun Fiesta costumes.

Along the route, there will be "reclovias" or recreation stops, for games, exercises, and healthy food. 

The event is free and open to the public.  Click here for more information and a look at last year's Siclovia.
