Each year hundreds of thousands of people line the banks of the San Antonio River to view the most unusual parade in America…the Texas Cavaliers River Parade! This year’s parade, entitled “20/20 Vision” promises an evening of family fun with live music, celebrities and lights. More than 50 festively decorated floats (that actually float!) with live music and costumed participants. King Antonio XCVIII will reign over the evening’s festivities as he will lead the parade in his custom-made King’s Cruiser and wave and dance all along the parade route. Monies generated through the parade are donated to local children’s charities through the Texas Cavaliers Charitable Foundation.
Founded in 1926, the Texas Cavaliers consist of over 600 business, civic and community leaders seeking to give back to the community and support those in need. Made possible by their generous community partners, the Texas Cavaliers have given away more than $6 million. In addition, the Cavaliers support local children, First Responder, and Military charities at the annual River parade where honorees and their families are fed and view the parade from special seating to recognize their contributions to the community. The Texas Cavaliers River Parade has been supporting children’s charities since 1989. This colorful and vibrant parade not only lights up the river during Fiesta, it also lights up a child’s face. Over 250,000 people attend each year.
Admission is $14-$30.
Tickets Available for Purchase at The Fiesta Store® and The Texas Cavaliers Office.
