Can't make it to our Ford Holiday River Parade? No worries, the holiday magic of the twinkling River Walk lights stays with us nightly through the first week of January. Take a leisurely stroll admiring the lights, or hop aboard a Go Rio River Cruise for holiday-themed, narrated tours of the River Walk.

Over 100,000 holiday lights line the trees on the river this time of year!
