texas cavaliers river parade

As the most unique parade in the United States, it is one of the premier events each year during San Antonio's biggest celebration, Fiesta. Seated under the stars of a spring evening, the viewers are treated to the spectacular sights and sounds of a parade that winds its way through the heart of downtown San Antonio. Professionally decorated barges become floating "islands", bearing thousands of twinkling lights, festive bands, and colorfully costumed participants.
While 17,000 reserved tickets are available for sale, the great majority of the 250,000 spectators will see the parade free from restaurants, hotels, bridges and open public areas along the river. Sponsored and produced by the Texas Cavaliers, it truly is a parade for the people of San Antonio.
