Ford Fiesta de las Luminarias

Experience the holiday serenity of the River Walk as you stroll along the lush banks of the San Antonio River guided by more than 3,000 luminarias. This centuries-old tradition begins at dusk Friday, Saturday, and Sunday only for three weekends in December. Candles burn out on December 16 at 7 p.m. Luminarias are a traditional Mexican Christmas lantern originally consisting of a candle set in sand inside a small bag. The River Walk luminarias display features 2,000 bags during nine nights over three weekends. 2016 was the first year wax candles were replaced with flickering LED candles. This provided a better display of lights for visitors and it is delivered more safely. The LED are resistant to rain and cold. View the luminarias and listen to Ford Holiday Boat Caroling from a River Walk restaurant or bar while dining or sipping on a drink.
