Barge with large Alamo Church shape prop in evening parade on the river

There’s nothing quite like the Texas Cavaliers River Parade. Festive music fills the air and vibrant floats pass by as guests watch from the banks of the San Antonio River.

This one-of-a-kind parade started in 1941 after a group of Texas Cavaliers witnessed boats and barges decorated with flowers in the “floating gardens” of Mexico City. This coincided with the San Antonio River bend restoration, and the Texas Cavaliers decided to bring this unique experience to our city.

Eighty years later, the Texas Cavaliers River Parade has found its way into the hearts of over 250,000 spectators each year, and all money raised supports local children’s charities. This year's River Parade takes place on Monday, April 22 along the San Antonio Riverwalk, and the Alamo is honored to have a float dedicated to Texas History.
