The San Antonio River Walk Association needs volunteer parade seating ushers for their annual Ford Holiday River Parade held Friday, November 29th, 2019. The parade rings in the holidays, and officially turns the River Walk lights on. 

As your Chamber was instrumental in the creation of the River Walk and SARWA (as well as having an office directly on the river), we know how important volunteers are for the holiday parade. SARWA needs about 250 volunteers to help run the event smoothly.

The parade won fourth best holiday parade in the country by USA Today! The Parade Grand Marshal this year is Billy F. Gibbons – lead singer for ZZ Top, with 26 other Texas Musicians set to play on the floats as well. Bring your friends, families, and groups!

SARWA will provide volunteers: Free event parking at Central Library, Volunteer meal from WHATABURGER, and a River Walk branded light-up Elf Hat

Attire: Holiday-themed attire and comfortable shoes

Location: San Antonio River Walk
