Partner Event: Armed Forces River Parade

  • Arneson River Theatre 418 Villita San Antonio, TX 78204 (map)

Partner: San Antonio Riverwalk Association

San Antonio is nicknamed “Military City U.S.A.” for deep military roots dating back over 300 years. The  Armed Forces River Parade began in 2012 to celebrate the rich tradition and honor the men and women in active duty and veterans in all branches of the service. The parade is free, televised live locally and syndicated throughout the United States through Memorial Day.

This parade, dedicated to the men and women of the United States Armed Forces, features 26 patriotically-decorated floats carrying all branches of military personnel. The parade features live and DJ music and will play from all the floats. View the parade for free from anywhere downtown on the River Walk. On-stage entertainment will serenade the floats through the Arneson River Theatre.

The presenting event sponsor is Budweiser. For details go to
