Historic Market Square still home to key San Antonio celebrations
Historic Market Square is probably best known for good eats and as a hot destination for tourists, but its history dates back more than 100 years.
Plazas were a large part of the San Antonio's earliest days. Market Square moved from the main plaza -- "Plaza de Armas" -- to its current location in the 1890s.
As San Antonio grew, so did Market Square.
In 1976, it once again became a place where people could come together for entertainment and celebrations.
Today, it hosts a number of events like 'Fiesta de Los Reyes' -- one of the largest free and family celebrations during Fiesta.
It's also home to 'El Gran Tamalada', a huge tamale-making party that happened just last week.
To this day, it continues to be a place of huge importance for San Antonio and its diverse culture.
