8th Christmas Lights Walk (at night)
We start at the stately VFW Post 76, “The Oldest Post in Texas.” It is a lovely Victorian building on the River Walk, with a festive outdoor Beer Garden. The non-competitive walk distances are 3km (1.8 miles); 7km (4.3 miles), and 10km (6.2 miles). Walk, run, or jog at your own pace. The event is open to everyone. We encourage families to attend; an adult must accompany children under 12. Everyone must register and pay $3. You will receive a start card which you must carry with you and turn in at the FINISH table. Please carry a flashlight.
The Christmas season is truly the most beautiful time of the year in San Antonio, which twinkles with stunning holiday light displays. Enjoy strolling on the River Walk along the banks of the San Antonio River. Marvel at the music and light show at the locks. Be dazzled at The Pearl.
The routes are rated 1A. The trail is rated difficult for wheelchairs and strollers due to the stairs. There are many places to eat and drink along the route.
