2023 Day of the Dead San Antonio River Parade
Friday, October 27 at 7:00 PM

Join us at the San Antonio River Walk for the Day of the Dead River Parade. See elaborately decorated floats with altars, catrinas, and costumed riders all celebrating life and loved ones. What better place to commemorate this celebration than right here in beautiful San Antonio?

26 decorated barges will parade down the river that runs through the heart of our magnificent city along the River Walk. Each barge represents a different figure or tradition associated with the Day of the Dead.
