Reviewed November 29, 2014
The overall parade was very nice. We enjoyed it. The down fall was that the location of the booth/ticket check in was not clearly stated and we had to ask around. Also they only had one booth for tickets manned by two people. It didn't matter if you had already purchased a groupon you still had to stand in the same long line as people who were purchasing tickets that night. So be prepared to be in a long slow moving line. Also the location of general admission is at the end of the parade route and there are no shops or restaurants nearby for entertainment while you wait. The parade starts at 7pm but didn't reach general admission seating until about 8:30/8:45. So its a long wait so pack snacks or eat ahead of time. They say to get there early for a seat but note that you have to wait almost two hours with not much to do. So plan ahead. Overall a fun night to kick off the holidays.

The 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.
