Years ago a friend of mine had her debutante ball in San Antonio. I am forever grateful for the invite, as it was one of the most spectacular events I have ever witnessed. Twenty foot trains on dresses covered in Swarovski crystals. My friends dress was NYC themed and the gown displayed the skyline in glitzy over the top glory.
The day before the big night, we all had dinner aboard a boat that traveled along the San Antonio River Walk, and it was fabulous. I truly recommend that if you are in San Antonio, don't skip out on the experience. The Alamo is great and all, but can you drink a maragrita with the sun on your face and the wind in your hair as people watch you float by at the Alamo? I think not. Remember the Riverwalk!
