One of San Antonio’s greatest upsides is the variety of “things” to see and do at any given time. This weekend is no exception as a variety of different events take place in and around the city. No effort is needed, ten of the best fun things to do in San Antonio this weekend are already described here. Hopefully this list will make researching for this weekend’s Friday celebration, date night, or family outing a little more simple.

Indiana Jones is the epitome of adventure, however, this classic movie series is also widely known for its music, written by the famous John Williams. The San Antonio Symphony is performing Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark in concert this weekend at the Majestic Theatre. The popular theme music is memorable and will allow you to relive the magic of the movie through song. The Majestic will be playing the movie but the sound will be performed by the symphony to give the audience the full experience of Indiana Jones. You won’t want to miss this adventure!
