Families already claiming their stake for Easter camping

The city of San Antonio lifted the curfew on city parks to allow people to camp out at their favorite spots though Sunday.

SAN ANTONIO - An Easter weekend tradition in San Antonio is already underway.

The city of San Antonio lifted the curfew on city parks to allow people to camp out at their favorite spots though Sunday.

The curfew was lifted at 11 p.m. Thursday and people have already claimed their spot. If you want in on the camping fun, you'll have to act fast if you plan on holding your Easter celebration outside.

Camping will be allowed at nine different city parks.

The parking facility at Brackenridge Park and the Island House and Gym at Woodlawn Lake Park are excluded.   

Recycling bins will be available but campers need to remember to bring plenty of trash bags.

This year, Parks and Recreation said they are offering activities at Brackenridge Park on Friday and Saturday which will include some fun Easter prizes. The parks are also getting social media savvy with some Snapchat filters as well as a contest for campers at all the parks.

People can enter a photo via social media showing how they're keeping their camp area clean.

There is also a volunteer event on Monday. For more information, you can visit the San Antonio Parks and Recreation website.

Remember, the curfew goes back into effect Easter Sunday, at 11 p.m.
