“The Adoption Fiesta will celebrate San Antonio’s annual party with an inclusive celebration featuring hundreds of adoption-ready pets and a parade of foster dogs,” a news release states.

The event is free and open to the public.

More than 30 local vendors will sell food, drinks and services in the pop-up market. Some food trucks include Tony’s Kitchen, Dos Perro’s Coffee and Mamas Tacos.
