Ford Holiday River Parade - Volunteer on the River Walk

Save to Favorites

San Antonio River Walk Division of Visit San Antonio


Every year we kick off of the Holiday season in San Antonio with our Ford Holiday River Parade, which is our biggest one-day event. This year we will have our parade on Friday, November 26.
We celebrate our 40th annual Ford Holiday River Parade as spectators experience the lighting of the River Walk and view 27 beautifully decorated and illuminated floats as we officially open the holiday season. This year's theme, 40 Years of Magic is the perfect backdrop for our Grand Marshal, Willy Wonka from the Broadway production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The parade is televised locally and syndicated nationally through the new year with over a million viewers. This is our biggest event of the year and we need all the help we can get. We have a variety of positions available the Wednesday before the event and the day of the event.
