Information on the Holiday River Parade & Lighting Ceremony

Holiday River Parade & Lighting Ceremony San Antonio


One of the many barges that took place in last year’s Holiday Parade.

The Holiday River Parade & Lighting Ceremony in San Antonio has taken place over the last 30 years, and it is one of the most unique parades out there. If you haven’t checked it out before, we highly suggest that you do this year. As it always takes place the Friday after Thanksgiving, this year’s parade will be held on Nov. 29.

The festivities will once again be kicked off by Mayor Julian Castro who will throw the switch on the lights at 7pm. This is definitely one of the highlights of the night, as there are roughly 1.75 million LED lights that illuminate the San Antonio River Walk. Seeing them all come on at once is truly a magical experience.

Once the lights are switched on, the parade begins. As you can imagine, it takes place on the river, rather than the road. There is a whole boatload of barges and floats that pass by, many of which feature local and national celebrities, bands and musicians which is why tickets are required. Continue reading
