About the event
The 38 th annual Ford Holiday River Parade will be held on Friday, November 23 rd on the downtown River Walk. Each of the 29 floats will bring to life the 2018 theme Christmas In San Antonio, with lights, decor and costumed float riders. This family-friendly event is held each year the day after Thanksgiving and kicks off the official lighting of the River Walk.
Help us share the "Christmas Spirit" with over 50,000 spectators in downtown San Antonio plus millions of television views nationwide.
