The Alamo City celebrates its 300th birthday in 2018—a yearlong fête involving nearly 700 partner events that celebrate not only the past, but also the city’s present and future. In honor of the past, the Witte Museum, which is dedicated to South Texas heritage, history, and science, will unveil a Tricentennial exhibit on March 3. The word choice, confluence, is an intentional double entendre, as it represents the joining of cultures that has happened for so many centuries at the confluence of the San Antonio River and San Pedro Creek. The exhibit runs through Jan. 6, 2019.
