The city is getting ready to kick off a year-long celebration of its 300th anniversary with a giant New Year’s Eve party downtown.

It includes interactive art, food and beverage booths, games and music.

“The acts on stage aren’t just great blockbusters, but also are reflective of San Antonio,” said Mayor Ron Nirenberg.

Grammy winners Flaco Jimenez and Little Joe Y La Familia have been added to the entertainment lineup.

“They’ll be joining REO Speedwagon and Pat Benatar and a number of different acts that will show the flavor of San Antonio, which is extremely diverse,” said Nirenberg.

The Tricentennial New Year’s Eve party kicks off at 4 pm Sunday and ends at 12:30 a.m. Monday.
