November 27 in San Antonio history...

1936
Eighty-two years ago today, legendary bluesman Robert Johnson recorded “Cross Road Blues” in the Gunter Hotel on Houston Street.  The song would later be notably covered by Cream featuring the guitar prowess of Eric Clapton.

1980
The first Raul Jimenez Thanksgiving Dinner is held in San Antonio.

2015
For the first time in the history of the event, heavy rain forces the cancellation of the Holiday River Parade after it begins.  Twelve floats made it down the river before the cancellation. Earlier in the evening, the 10,000 lights on the 55-foot white fir in Alamo Plaza were turned on.  The tree is decorated with silver and black ornaments as a tribute to the Spurs.
