HOLIDAYS IN SAN ANTONIO

November 21, 2015

The holidays are coming and San Antonio is ready.  The most fun event is at the River Walk downtown.  The River Walk winds along the San Antonio River one block beneath the city.  Walk, ride a boat, shop or enjoy a riverside restaurant and watch the boats go by.  The Holiday River Parade and Lighting Ceremony is an annual tradition in San Antonio and marks the beginning of the holiday season.  This year it will take place on November 27th from 7:00pm to 9:00 pm.  There is a parade of illuminated boats along the River Walk.  Filled with lights, decorated and carrying celebrities and bands and music, it is great fun for the entire family.  Tickets can be purchased online.

Another River Walk holiday event is Boat Caroling.  Every night at 8:15pm between December 2 and December 20, a different group glides along the River and sings carols and other popular songs.  The Fiesta de las Luminarias begins December 4th through December 20th.  Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening during that time period, luminarias are lit at dusk all along the banks of the River Walk.  It is truly festive and beautiful!  Have fun this holiday season in San Antonio!                                                         http://www.powerhiking.comChristmas in San Antonio
