This will coincide with the 74th annual Texas Association of Magicians Convention, which will be held that weekend in downtown San Antonio.

"We have three evening shows that are open to the public to attend," says TAOM president Salvatore Manfredo. "There will be different shows each evening with award-winning magicians performing."

The guest of honor at this year's convention will be world-renowned card magician and San Antonio resident Richard Turner. Turner recently appeared on Penn and Teller's FOOL US (successfully fooling Penn and Teller) and is the subject of the biographical documentary DEALT.

Activities for those registered for the convention include contests, teaching lectures, a dealers' room, and a close-up magic show by world-class magicians. These will take place at the Hilton Palacio del Rio. The evening stage shows are open to the public and will be at the Magik Theatre at 420 S. Alamo St., near Hemisfair Plaza.
