The Soledad Roof dancing garden will open at 8 o’clock tonight for the 1918 summer dance season. The Roof has been extensively redecorated and beautified, a large amount of money having been expended to make it meet the requirements of the soldiers and civilians of San Antonio who wish to spend a pleasant evening.
Playland Park holds its grand opening in its new location at 2222 N. Alamo (at Broadway). It will remain San Antonio’s favorite amusement park until closing in 1980.
The Alamodome opens to the public. “This day was a long time coming, but it’s finally here,” said former mayor Henry Cisneros, now secretary of Housing and Urban Development. “It’s the beginning of a new chapter in San Antonio’s life.”
