If you've always wondered what a particular party was like, this is the place. Next time a party rolls around, you'll know if it's one you want to attend in plenty of time to make plans.
If you see a picture you like, just download it to your computer...no charge. If you have pictures of these or other parties Raoul missed, drop him a line and maybe he'll be able to use them (and give you credit). Here's your chance for your 15 minutes of fame!
If you have a private function you'd like Raoul to immortalize, let him know and if his busy schedule allows it and it sounds like it'll be a good time, he'll be there. Raoul@PartyPicts.com
The Paseo del Rio Association loaded their barges (yep, they have their own fleet of boats) with coffins, ghosts, monsters and an assorted bevy of beautiful and talented ladies for a lighted night parade. After the parade the Association sponsored a street party and dance complete with a costume contest. You should see some of the entries...can you say Hollyweird pros?
|Paseo del Rio 1999 Canoe Challenge!|
What a race! Canoes were going every direction, a certain celeb found himself in the water-not once but 3 times and the team of "Davy & Roaul" set a new record. Oh, did I mention Alexis, Breanne, the Spurs Coyote and the Bud Girls were there...
|NBA Finals 1999!|
Hundreds of pictures taken on the Riverwalk and at the Alamodome during the 1999 NBA Finals in San Antonio, including the unprecedented DomeParty for Game 3, the Victory Street Party plus the Spurs Riverwalk parade and pep rally.
Almost 500 terrific photos of the madness San Antonio calls Fiesta! Spend two nights at NIOSA, Night In Old San Antonio, one working in the Chicken-on-a-Stick booth in ChinaTown, the other crusing around the party at the fabled Thursday "College Night!" Take a tour of San Fernando Park's party on your way to Market Square's bash and the Carnival with it's colorful rides and riders!
|1999 Texas Folklife Festival|
Four days of Hot Fun! Music, dancing, food, drink, crafts, demonstrations, berm sledding and kite flying! It's all here, 186 great photos of the Festival and the beautiful people who make it worthwhile. This is one of Texas' great parties and one that is enjoyed by all ages.
|Houston Street Stampede|
To kick off their Grand Opening and relocation back to downtown, the Buckhorn Museum & Saloon stampeded (at a walk) 50 head of prime longhorns down Houston Street. A parking lot was commandeered for an authentic, cowboy breakfast, bull riding and music extravaganza. Those guys really know how to get your attention and throw a party! 67 photos!
|Gruene Hall - Johnny Dee & The Rocket 88s|
Raoul, Teresa, Dave & Melo took off for a great evening of music and libations to celebrate the day before the 4th of July. Join them as they show you the band and the crowd. It was a terrific evening and everyone had a great time. If you haven't been to Gruene, then git there! 172 pictures in this series.
Each spring Travis Park hosts a free two day/three night jazz fest. Not only is the music great, there's always tons of food and beverage to allow you to spend the entire day just enjoying the scene. This is one of the best free public parties anywhere. This year's (1999) will be September 17-19 in Travis Park. 140 pics.
|New Year's Eve 1998-1999|
Times Square doesn't have anything on San Antonio when it comes to celebrating the passing of Father Time. It was a wonderful, if foggy, evening to spend celebrating with 150,000 of your closest friends. 190 great celebration pictures!
|SA Rodeo's Cowboy Breakfast|
You gotta get up early for this one since it starts before dawn and is over about the time most people are going to work. Each year, thousands pack the parking lot at Central Park Mall for a wide variety of free breakfast goodies and entertainment. If you can get up early enough, be sure to make it next year. 285 not to be missed pics!
|Trout Fishin' in Baffin Bay|
Speaking of getting up early, hop aboard with Raoul, his father and brothers and their expert guide as they spend the morning trout fishing in Baffin Bay. They caught their limit, got fried in the sun and had a great time. If you know anything about fishing, you know Baffin Bay has the best speckled trout fishing on the Texas coast. All the details and even how to get in touch with the best trout guide on the Gulf Coast, Les Cobb. 97 pictures
|Woo! Woo! All Aboard!|
It took two days of dawn to dusk work to get it moved, but they moved old #794 train engine from Maverick Park on Broadway where it'd been neglected for over 40 years to the new Sunset Station entertainment complex at the old train station. From start to finish, it's all here including 21 never before seen 3D photos! 125 pictures of Saturday and 144 shots on Sunday!
|Raoul has thousands of pics still "in the can" that he's working on so he can put them up for your entertainment. All the following parties will be immortalized soon so stay tuned!|
|1998 Battle of the Flowers Parade|
Raoul missed this year's four+ hour parade but last year's pics will give you an idea of the pomp and circumstance SA gets excited over each year.
|Buckhorn Museum & Saloon Grand Opening Party!|
What a party this was! Private invitation only, the beautiful people showed up in droves and enjoyed one of the finest parties San Antonio has seen in a long time. If you'd like to see more of the Museum and Saloon, we've got a series of 3D photos for your enjoyement.
|Mud Queen Festival|
What better time to throw a party on the Riverwalk than when it's drained and muddy? The Paseo del Rio Association thinks it works and as you'll see from the pics, so do hundreds of others. This year the Mud Queen Ball was at Polly Ester's. A good time was had by all as Raoul can attest to and you'll see...
|Tejano Music Festival|
Raoul doesn't remember exactly what this bash was called, just that it preceeded the Tejano Music Awards and just about everybody in the business was there. See all your favorites up close and personal!
