May 15 in San Antonio history…

1943>May 15 in San Antonio History...
Playland Park holds its grand opening in its new location at 2222 N. Alamo (at Broadway). It will remain San Antonio’s favorite amusement park until closing in 1980.

Rather than cutting the traditional ribbon, Mayor Lila Cockrell sliced through a six-foot-long hot dog to officially dedicate the new Brackenridge Park Water Works Snack Bar.  The hot dog and bun, which required two people to transport – were donated by Roeglein Provision Co. and Butter Krust Bakery.  The new $261,000 structure is located near the Hildebrand Avenue entrance to the park and across from the Joske Pavilion.

The Alamodome opens to the public.
