The event is free and open to all. Everyone is encouraged to bring blankets, lawn chairs and picnic dinners, although a concession stand will sell sodas, water, hot chocolate, popcorn and peanuts.
"We encourage everyone to show their Roadrunner spirit," said UTSA President Ricardo Romo. "This Friday is Spirit Day, so we hope you all will wear your orange and blue. I hope to see everyone at the events this week, including Rowdy Rampage. Where else can you see fireworks in February? And, everyone's invited to the Homecoming men's basketball game against the Lamar Cardinals at 2 p.m., Saturday."
