Check Out a Holiday Festival That Combines American and Mexican Christmas Traditions

Experience the holiday serenity of the River Walk as you stroll along the lush banks of the San Antonio River guided by more than 2,000 Luminarias at night. This century’s old tradition begins at dusk Friday through Sunday.

Enjoy the Holiday lights overhead, the luminarias along the banks of the river, and the Ford Holiday Boat Caroling floating by while you stroll or as you enjoy a frothy hot beverage or exquisite meal along the River Walk. You can purchase these beautiful luminarias at the online River Walk store!

Luminarias are a traditional Mexican Christmas lantern originally consisting of a candle set in sand inside a small paper bag. Our River Walk Luminarias are a little different in that the flame doesn't go out.
View the Luminarias and listen to Ford Holiday Boat Caroling from a River Walk from the banks of the river or on a patio cafe. This is seasonal festival is sure to brighten up your night!

At Hillcreste at Thousand Oaks Apartments in San Antonio, Texas, we pride ourselves on informing our residents about all the upcoming events our beautiful community has to offer. Don’t hesitate to join this event on Friday!
