SAN ANTONIO – We did it! We made it to January 2021 after what feels like the world’s longest year.

Last year, we can all agree, was a mess. For many reasons that we won’t be discussing in this article because we don’t need to look back on that dumpster fire of a year. (Though it wasn’t ALL bad, it definitely was not the kick-off to a new decade most people had in mind.)

Here’s a list of some of the things we are looking forward to in the San Antonio-area in January:

  1. MLK March - This will be celebrated virtually this year due to concerns regarding the coronavirus pandemic but it’s still special. San Antonio’s MLK March is considered to be among the largest such events in the U.S. and draws up to an estimated 300,000 people in typical years.
  2. Trout Fishing - The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department will continue stocking rainbow trout at four San Antonio-area lakes. Read more here.
  3. Food - Culinaria Restaurant Week(s) is a bi-annual event that celebrates all things food. San Antonio foodies, brace yourselves for a month of restaurant bliss. Read more here.
  4. Black Friday - In January? It’s true, a new store is expected to open this month which will offer steep discounts on items six days a week. Read more here.
  5. COVID-19 Vaccines - Whether you choose to get it or not, the fact that it’s finally available is giving many people peace of mind. Currently, the vaccine is going to people in high priority categories. Read more here.
  6. Stimulus Checks - Payments of $600 per person are on the way for some Americans after Congress sealed the deal on a new COVID-19 economic relief package. Read more here.
  7. Beginning of a New Year - Some people make resolutions and others eat black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day. No matter what traditions you do or don’t follow, it’s great to put 2020 behind us, isn’t it?

How it feels finally making it to 2021:
