Now that both Halloween and Christmas have passed, at least as far as 2019 goes, it's hard to justify watching The Nightmare Before Christmas yet again. Just because you may not have a "good" reason to watch it for the hundredth time, doesn't mean you can't celebrate it! San Antonio's A Nightmare Before Christmas event is back this March, with even more to do than any year before.
Lost in Wonderland and Jack's Back is this March at none other than Wonderland of the Americas.
From Saturday, March 7 until Sunday, March 8 you can come out and enjoy 80+ unique vendors that all have something Nightmare Before Christmas-related to offer.
It's completely free to attend, which is good because you'll definitely be spending your money elsewhere.
This event has been named San Antonio's Best Pop Culture Event and for good reason.
You can come in costume, see others in costume, and enjoy tons of cool photo-ops while you're there.
Handmade jewelry, crafts, fine arts, pop culture tees, and more will all be available for purchase.
Like we said, be prepared to spend the money! Everything you get will be one-of-a-kind.
If you love Nightmare Before Christmas and look for any opportunity to celebrate it, fests similar to this one can be found all around Texas.
I don't know about other states, but Texans share some serious love for the Tim Burton classic.
The bridge, which hangs over Wurzbach Parkway, was put into place to connect the once divided Phil Hardberger Park and offer animals and people a safe way to cross the busy road.
The bridge will also be an amazing community hangout spot, as it connects a park that features multiple amenities such as a playground, dog park and basketball courts.
The Tobin bridge will also be connecting over 7 miles of nature trails, which will undoubtedly lead to a hike that is truly unlike any other in the state.
Of course, the opening day comes with multiple restrictions to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, including limited bathroom usage and social-distancing.
The Robert L.B. Tobin Land Bridge
Address: 8400 N.W. Military Hwy. & 13203 Blanco Rd. San Antonio, TX
Why You Need To Go: This bridge is truly unlike anything you've ever seen. Connecting two parks together, you'll find it easy to spend the whole day exploring the wilderness and crossing this massive structure that is saving both human and animal lives.
We need it now more than ever, so why wait?

In addition to the incredible experience of simply walking up and down the path, you can also consider participating in numerous special holiday events that take place on the river.
One of these events is the "Caroling Boats," where you and your gang of friends can rent a boat and take it through the river while singing your favorite holiday tunes for all of your loyal fans.
The best part about the river walk is that not only is it open 24-hours a day, it's also completely FREE, although you might find it difficult to not stop and get some famous San Antonio tacos along the way.
