There is always something going on at Main Plaza but the nightime light show is fantastic. You get the history of San Antonio Lazer projected onto the side of the Cathedral. It is a must not miss thing to do in San Antonio.

This is a must do. the light and sound show projected on the Cathedral 3 times each night (from Thursday to Sunday) is an absolute must! not necessarily for the story it tells (about the take over of Alamo) but for the immersive experience.
