As part of the anniversary weekend celebrating the opening day of the San Antonio World’s Fair, the Hilton – Palacio Del Rio hotel which was purpose built to accommodate visitors to the Fair held a grand party on April 6, 2018. The event celebrated the rich 50 year history of the hotel from HemisFair 68′ to the present.
