Party on the Paseo brings free, fun and safe Fiesta entertainment to UTSA on April 27
(April 24, 2017) -- The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) is the place to be on Thursday night to celebrate Fiesta. Party on the Paseo begins at 6 p.m. on Thursday, April 27 at the H-E-B University Center Paseo on the UTSA Main Campus.
The Paseo will be transformed into a Fiesta party with free food, games and activities. New this year, three lives bands will take center stage to entertain diverse music tastes. Local salsa band and fellow Roadrunners Sonora Correcaminos will perform along with Celeste'al Descent, an alternative rock band featuring UTSA student Joseph 'JJ' Herron. Finally, UTSA alum Derek Bell '10 will also get the crowd jumping with his songs. DJ Gumby will also play the latest hits.
"Party at the Paseo instills a sense of pride in the university," said Jarvis W. Clark, associate director of UTSA Student Activities. "It gives students and the community an opportunity to embrace another part of UTSA in an atmosphere that's fun, friendly and safe."
The ninth annual party, an unofficial Fiesta event, also aims to raise awareness among students about the dangers of alcohol abuse. The UTSA Police Department will hold a drunk driving simulator. Students can also try out a texting and driving simulator.
After the party wraps up at 9 p.m., UTSA students can stick around Main Campus to watch the movie "Collide" in the H-E-B University Center Harris Room (HUC 2.212).
"We want students to come out, enjoy being around one another and just have a good time," Clark said.
Party on the Paseo, featuring various UTSA departments and outside agencies, is sponsored and coordinated by the UTSA Office of Student Activities and Beaks Up. Speak Up.
