$500,000 seems a little steep considering they canceled the St. Patrick's day parade because of lack of funds... Please lord tell me there's going to be other events, festivals or ANYTHING ELSE going on labor day weekend! If not, a weekend trip to Austin will be nice.

The city didn't cancel it.

In a letter to supporters, the Harp and Shamrock Society, which organizes the annual event, said costs imposed by the City of San Antonio for police, barricades, and permits had ballooned to $12,000, which the society could not afford this year.

Judging by all the recent club fights and never ending DWI parade, San Antonio is gearing up for Fiesta. I wonder is this will really be a "cultural" music festival or another drunken event

Let's stop the nonsense and get back to the original topic.
when is the last time the city let a non Hispanic parade happen?
as in waive the fees involved

This isn't a parade, its music festival. And the last non Hispanic parade that comes to mind MLK.

Again, let's stick to original topic and stop making this a race issue.

This is the same fee required for all parades.

And your point to this is?
