Ford Parade of Lanterns

Visit the River Walk to view ten 26-ft. long boats carrying large illuminated lanterns floating throughout the downtown section of the River Walk.

For two weeks, January 25-February 8, 2020  ten river floats carrying magically-illuminated enormous lanterns such as a dragon, adorable pandas, pinatas, and other objects will appear from 6:00-9:00 PM each night. The last night to take in the beauty is February 8th. Enjoy the magically illuminated floats from anywhere along the downtown portion of the River Walk. Asian-inspired music will softly play from each float.
