News & Announcements

October 31 in San Antonio history...

1913
Beethoven Hall. South Alamo street, San Antonio’s largest auditorium, was partially destroyed by a fire that broke out at 10:45 p.m. this evening. The building, valued at $40,000, suffered damages of $25,000, it was estimated today. The origin of the blaze has not yet been fully determined. Delay in sounding the alarm permitted the fire  to gain great headway, as members of the Beethoven Maennerchor in the club room did not heed cries of “fire,” believing practical jokers were intent on making them victims of a Hallowe’en prank.

1993
The mercury plummets to 27 degrees, making for frigid trick-or-treating and setting numerous records for the date:
– The lowest temperature for Oct. 31, breaking the mark of 33 degrees reported in 1980.
– The lowest temperature ever in October, surpassing the 32 degrees recorded Oct. 30, 1917.
– The lowest temperature so early in the season, once again breaking the 32 degrees reported Oct. 30, 1917.
– It was the first time since record-keeping began in 1885 for the lowest temperature in October to drop into the 20′s.

1997
Fleetwood Mac performs at the Alamodome in support of their live album “The Dance.”
