April 22 in San Antonio history...

1917 – World War I
With mock ceremony and great noise, and laugh-provoking buffoonery, after the passing of a pageant which was the worthy successor of the S. O. S. V. parade  of last year, King St. Vitus and Queen Loco were “crowned” last night on the special stage on Alamo Plaza. King St. Vitus appeared in the person of Edward Raymond and his fair consort was personified by Charles W. Fichtner, round, jolly, but quarrelsome. Bevies of court attaches. Hawaiian dancers, minstrels, buglers and royal personages lent an air of burlesque stateliness that was humorous in the extreme.

1908
A much improved and beautifully terraced Electric Park opened for the season last night. Everything was newly painted and spick and span. A Ferris wheel, largest in the South, has been added to the amusements.

1982
