As the weather gets colder (cold-ish?) and becomes more unpredictable (Rain or sun or fog? Oh, my!), it’s good to have indoor fun ideas you can enjoy with your family. The 2015 San Antonio Auto and Truck Show fits the bill with entertainment and activities kids (and adults!) will love.
Presented by the San Antonio Automobile Dealers Association, the 47th annual San Antonio Auto & Truck Show takes place Thursday, November 19 – Sunday, November 22 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center (200 E Market St, San Antonio, TX 78205).
Recognized as South Texas’ premier automotive event, the show highlights the auto industry’s newest innovations and provides visitors a one-stop shop for evaluating the latest cars, trucks, and technologies.
