Viagran hosted an event Saturday at the Mission Drive-In and drew a crowd of protestors in the process.

The issues they claim to be upset about are the removal of bike lanes on South Flores Street and the City Council's vote to rezone the Mission Trails Mobile Home Park.

"She spear-headed a project that's setting a precedent for the way things can be done in San Antonio with this rezoning project that's effectively making 300 or so people homeless," said Nicholas Alvarado of the District 3 Political Action Committee.

"Well right now our focus is all about the fun family time here, it's all about bringing the community out and together, and highlighting this great location," said Viagran.

She did not address the concerns of the protestors at the event.
