May 15 in San Antonio history…
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.
