Military River Parade
The inaugural Military River Parade -- Here’s to our Heroes will be held on Armed Forces Day, Saturday, May 19, from 3-5 p.m. at the Arneson River Theatre and the Horseshoe Bend of the River Walk in San Antonio.
The parade will feature 25 professionally decorated river barges with participants from all branches of military service, veterans of recent conflicts, military support groups, and live entertainment from military groups and local artists.
Participants can purchase yellow ribbons for $5 each in honor of their deployed loved ones to adorn the trees lining the River Walk.
The parade is free to view from the patios and balconies of River Walk restaurants, but to avoid an obstructed view, seats will be available in the Arneson River Theatre for $15, or near the Chamber of Commerce Building or the Rivercenter Mall lagoon for $10.
