Kick Off the Holiday Season with the 35th Annual Ford Holiday River Parade

Ring in the holidays with this iconic night parade filled with lights, costumed float riders & music. Floats depict holiday movie classics for the theme, Christmas at the Movies.

The 35th annual Ford Holiday River Parade is a San Antonio tradition drawing over 40,000 people annually. It offers a spectacular parade along the San Antonio River walk featuring 26 illuminated floats decorated for 2017 theme.

Parade participants include celebrities, bands, and lavishly- costumed people. 100,000 lights are illuminated to kick-off the parade. After Christmas music is performed and the River Walk lighting ceremony is complete, the parade lasts one hour from when you see the first float. This will depend on where you are seated on the parade route. See the clock on the main map posted with ticket sales for an approximate time when the first float is scheduled to appear in your area.
