Paper lanterns along the River Walk


Experience the holiday serenity of the River Walk as you stroll along the lush banks of the San Antonio River guided by more than 2,000 Luminarias at night. This centuries-old tradition begins at dusk Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays for three weekends, only in December. Luminarias are a traditional Mexican Christmas lantern originally consisting of a candle set in sand inside a small bag.

Enjoy the Holiday lights overhead, the luminarias along the banks of the river, and the Ford Holiday Boat Caroling floating from a  River Walk restaurant or bar while dining or sipping on a drink.

Ford Fiesta de las Luminarias runs weekends December 2-17, 2023.
