Fall festival at La Villita to take place of NIOSA with limited-ticket event
SAN ANTONIO – This year will deliver a pumpkin-spiced, scaled-back version of NIOSA in November. The Conservation Society of San Antonio announced it will hold a “Fall Heritage Festival” in La Villita that will have “comparisons” to NIOSA — just with a 1,000-attendance limit and admission of $125 per person. While the fall festival will be larger this year, Zaiontz said it “is nothing new for The Society.” This will be COSA’s 10th fall festival, she said. Guests are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to donate to the San Antonio Food Bank. Fiesta San Antonio was canceled entirely due to the coronavirus pandemic in July.
Maam, is this your chicken? Another Texas clucker flew the coop, this time to Jiffy Lube
PEARLAND, Texas It seems Texas chickens are feeling cooped up because they keep hitching rides to run errands with unsuspecting people. First, it was a chicken named Reba who went to a San Antonio Costco via an unknowing delivery drivers trunk, and now its a chicken named Maggie, who took a trip to a Pearland Jiffy Lube. Tiffany Travis, who lives in Pearland, reached out to KSAT after seeing Rebas story and said her neighbors chicken, Maggie, took an accidental trip with her to Jiffy Lube on Wednesday. Yes, yes that is my chicken.She realized one of her neighbors chickens had somehow hitched a ride. Thank God for funny chickens, Travis said.
Have you seen this chicken? Reba took an accidental field trip to San Antonio Costco
Some well-mean Good Samaritans saved Reba from the parking lot and took her home. She made it all the way to the border... Del Rio, TX but she’s coming home to us this weekend,” Matthews told KSAT. That’s where she hopped out.”Matthews said he drove to Costco, started asking employees about a rogue chicken and some parking lot attendants told him ,“yes. Reba has been a family pet for a year and a half along with Wynonna and Patty who are also chickens. She would always jump into our lap to say hi and would follow us around the yard like a pet,” Matthews said.
