Independence Day is right around the corner, and everyone living in San Antonio is invited to the 4th of July Celebration at Woodlawn Park. The all-day event is free to everyone and includes a huge variety of fun events. San Antonio property owners and their families can start their celebration at either of two fitness events. The day begins with a free Zumba session at the gym. Check-in is at 7:30 a.m., and the class gets going at 8. Then, the H-E-B Firecracker Fit Family 1/2 Mile Fun Walk will start at 9:45 a.m. Participants will meet up outside the gym at 9:30. Bikes, strollers, and wagons are all welcome on the walk.
The San Antonio Property Will Be Hopping with Games, Food, Music, and Fireworks

These begin at noon and run until 3 p.m. Carnival games and rides will also open at noon and go until 9:30 p.m. The food fair includes over 20 food trucks, serving up a variety of delicious food and drinks from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. There will be ATM machines at the park.
