If you're lucky enough to be in San Antonio during the holidays, you definitely won't want to miss The Holiday River Parade and Lighting Ceremony. This one-hour parade along San Antonio's River Walk features illuminated floats with celebrities, bands and stunningly-costumed participants. This elaborate event has been going on for over 30 years. We recommend popping into some of the best restaurants along the river, such as Luke, for dinner and a show!
No matter what you have planned, you simply must visit the river walk - that goes without saying. With all the twinkling lights and singing riverboats, this is one of the most enjoyable holiday attractions SA has to offer. We recommend getting some sweet treats at the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory to take with you on your stroll.
For spectacular entertainment during the holidays, The Tobin Center for the Performing Arts is hard to beat. This year, they will be showcasing a number of performances, including Conspirare Christmas with special guest Matt Alber on December 8, Robert Earl Keen’s ‘Merry Christmas from the Fam-O-Lee’ on December 15, the San Antonio Symphony’s ‘Holiday Pops,’ on Dec. 18-20, and everyone’s favorite, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer (the musical) on Dec. 21-24.
For great locations to dine, shop and enjoy the festivities, head to the Pearl Brewery or La Cantera! Christmas is in the air!
