Dyeing of the River Walk Green

Location: 2 1/2 mile route, downtown River Walk


Each year since 1968 the River Walk is magically transformed into the River Shannon with eco-friendly green dye.  This is a very popular time to visit the River Walk and watch the amazing transformation. A bagpiper plays on the barge as the river is transformed. Free viewing available along the entire 2 1/2 mile downtown portion of the River Walk. The color is instantly apparent and intensifies with water movement by the boats. The second-day application creates an even richer color. It's a great time to sit outdoors on a patio and enjoy a pint, or two. March 17 at 1pm and March 18 at 2pm.

If you can't make it to the River Walk, catch the live Facebook broadcast each day.  https://www.facebook.com/TheSanAntonioRiverWalkOfficial/ ; Last year over 50,000 people watched!
