Holiday Lights on the River Walk | Kids Out and About San Antonio

Holiday Lights on the River Walk

*The event has already taken place on this date: Mon, 01/10/2022
The famous holiday lights on the River Walk will turn on this year on November 12th and remain on from dusk to dawn nightly now through January 10, 2022. Though turning on early this year, the official televised lighting ceremony in the Arneson River Theatre will take place on Friday, November 26, 2021 to kick off the holidays at the annual Ford Holiday River Parade.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately.

We invite you to experience the spectacular display of over 100,000 lights (2,250 strings of light) draped over the towering bald cypress trees that line the River Walk.

Visiting the River Walk to enjoy the spectacular holiday lights is free. The River Walk is a public park and is open every day of the year, 24 hours a day. Holiday lights are on the downtown portion of the River Walk. Our friends at the San Antonio River Authority have added lights North of Downtown in the Pearl District.

Please check our website for other events that coincide with the holiday lights such as the Ford Fiesta de las Luminarias and Ford Holiday Boat Caroling.
