If you live in or visit San Antonio the River Walk is a must visit attraction and area of resaurants and shops. During the Christmas season they have over 100,000 lights hanging from the bald cypress trees and all around the River Walk. It is a site most Texans outside of San Antonio don’t get to enjoy, especially with the Sars-CoV-2 virus keeping many from going out and traveling. When San Antonio local and owner of Luxe Auto Detailing Jaron Cantreras told us we could share these photos he took of the River Walk’s christmas lights we were eager to jump at the chance.
The Christmas light display is called the Holiday Lights on the River Walk. The lights are displayed in the Downtown portion of the River Walk and bonus, it is a free event to attend since anyone can go walk the River Walk (it is considered a public park). The lights turn on around 6pm and stay on all through the night. The event lasts until January 4th of 2021, which means there is plenty of time to go and enjoy these gorgeous lights in person.
