Ford Parade of Lanterns
Parade of Lanterns will run Friday through Sunday evenings, August 27-29 and September 3-5
Each year the San Antonio River Walk is home to the Ford Parade of Lanterns where 10 beautiful, 26-ft-long boats are filled with large, illuminated lanterns floating throughout the downtown section of the River Walk. The pageantry is free to enjoy and held on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights from 8-10 PM, weather permitting.
Beginning at the International Center (203 S. St. Mary’s Street), they will travel the River Walk excluding the Shops at Rivercenter and Convention Center lagoons. We encourage you to enjoy the floats from a restaurant patio, with dinner or drinks. Please notify the restaurant of your preference to sit close to the river for optimum viewing.
Please note: High wind/rain conditions can prevent the floats from running on any given night. Boat drivers are empowered to make these decisions while on the water. Check TheSanAntonioRiverWalk.com for any updates.
