The McNay Art Museum had their annual “Teen Night” March 30.

Students got in for free as long as they registered online in advance.

The museum, which has been open since 1954, gave students complimentary food, and entertainment.

“My favorite part about the event was the free food and hanging out with friends,” junior Raymond Aguilar said. “I went because my teacher was giving extra credit.”

The event did indeed give students an opportunity to socialize, especially students who go to different schools.

There were also several activities to take part in, like creating custom pins with magazine cutouts, getting a bag made, drawing on a white #teennight frames to pose with.

“It was good to see people hanging out and enjoying their time together,” junior Yessica Ramirez, “The live band(s), everything was kinda good.”

Juniors Marcus Pineda and Raymond Aguilar pose next to a neon America sign. Aguilar wasn’t planning to go to the event but decided to last minute.

Students rode out the night until 10 p.m. at which time the musicians finished their last song and everybody went home.
