What to do in San Angelo – Weekend Roundup!

I hate it when I hear someone say, “There’s nothing to do in San Angelo.”  There’s ALWAYS something to do in San Angelo!


Downtown Movie Night is presenting “Pearl Harbor“.  It starts about 8:45 or 9:00 (when it’s dark enough).  It’s located in the parking lot at 17 E. Twohig.  And, best of all, it’s FREE!  Bring your own chairs.  Drinks and snacks are available for purchase.






Angelo Civic Theatre is performing “Becky’s New Car”.  Written by Steven Dietz, “Becky’s New Car,” has serious overtones – a devious and delightful romp down the road not taken. The story has depth and unexpected themes about choices and consequence that could believably happen to anyone.  Evening performances start tonight and Saturday night at 8:00 pm.  Tickets are $17 for Adults, $15 for Students, Seniors and Military, and $13 for Groups of 13 or more people.


The San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts is hosting their Family Day.  The theme this time is “Nigeria”.  It will be held from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm in the Art Museum Meeting Room.  It’s come-and-go as you please and it’s FREE!  There will be samples of Nigerian food and the kids can participate in making Nigerian themed crafts.

Old Town Second Saturdays in the Historic District will be held from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on the sidewalks and walkways of the 500 block of Orient Street.  This outdoor boutique style marketplace is a unique shopping destination where you can find a variety of original and unique handmade goods.  There will be catered food by Mejor Que Nada available for purchase.  Street musicians and other entertainers will be performing.  And, unless you want to buy something, it’s FREE.

The Hobo Festival, 2012 will be held at the Railway Museum of San Angelo from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.  It celebrates the rich heritage of the Hobo culture and its relationship to rail history.  There will be live music, children’s activities, a Craft and Flea market, and a variety of food from various vendors.  A Hobo Stew Cook-Off and Costume Contest is also planned.  You can find more information and a schedule of events at http://railwaymuseumsanangelo.homestead.com/hobo.html.


Go to Church!  Also, be sure and ask while your there if your church is holding a Vacation Bible School this year!  If not, you can find a schedule of other churches VBS programs here:  http://www.gosanangelo.com/news/2012/jun/01/vacation-bible-school/
