Friday night we went downtown to hang out on the Riverwalk with Santa. I heard about Ford's Caroling nights with Santa and knew we had to go. They had live entertainment, caroling and Free pictures with Santa. Santa and Mrs. Claus were set up right on a barge on the Riverwalk at Arneson River Theatre. It was a beautiful location to be at and of course with all the Christmas lights twinkling it made it so much better! We got even luckier because we happened to be downtown during the Festival de las Luminarias. The festival de las Luminarias has the Riverwalk walkways lined with sand filled bags with glowing candles to symbolize the Lighting of the way for the Holy Family. Its beautiful!

The Riverwalk lights
The Luminarias lining the RiverwalkWe then walked over to The Alamo to see the H-E-B Christmas Tree. It was beautiful of course! It was getting late so we called it a night and went home happily with great memories. I love How San Antonio has free events like Santa on the Riverwalk and the Luminarias. It gives it me such joy to live in this Beautiful city.
Have you guys been downtown to check out the lights and the tree?
