In light of the recent tragedy at Boston Marathon, San Antonio City Officials are confident of safety measures being taken through the 11 days of Fiesta 2013....
Police and Fire Chiefs William McManus and Charles Hood have met with Fiesta event organizers to assure that any emergency will be dealt with effectively.
City Manager Sheryl Sculley tells 550 KTSA News that there should be no problems, but suspicious activity should be reported.
McManus says if people are looking for increased police presence, they will probably see it. If they're not, they probably won't.
Mayor Julian Castro says "Fiesta is safe and fun... come out and have a great time"
Over 350,000 people are expected to attend each of the Fiesta parades.
