River Walk Association
The same series of walkways that host traditional community events, such as craft shows and musical spectacles, also serve as front-row seats to the 25,000 rubber ducks that race down the San Antonio River every autumn. The iconic public park is a point of pride for San Antonians and has been promoted and preserved since 1968 by the nonprofit The River Walk Association. Lined with shops, restaurants, and hotels, the walkways’ pair of parallel sidewalks draws throngs during annual events such as the Lucky Duck Race, the Christmas parade, and St. Patrick’s Day festival. During Halloween’s Bud Light Coffins on Parade, floating coffins make two laps around the River Walk and give the river a spooky touch without stocking it with talking fish.
