River Walk undergoing a transformation for Friday’s Day of the Dead parade
SAN ANTONIO – It’s almost time for the Dead River Day Parade in San Antonio!
The parade will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, October 29. KSAT will broadcast the parade live from 8 p.m. on KSAT 12 on KSAT.com or on our free streaming platform that works with most smart devices. Don’t miss the after-party on KSAT at 9 p.m.
Want to get the best seats? You can still buy tickets online here – but be aware that there are only a limited number of tickets left and they could sell out.
Before all the colorful, illuminated floats meander through the San Antonio River, we’ve got some behind-the-scenes photos below to share as organizers transform the famous River Walk for tonight’s event.
Hand painted skulls by local artists will be exposed. The celebration will also include a culinary meal ofrenda, or altar, which showcases the best the city has to offer in food and drink.
Worried about the weather? Don’t be – the forecast shows no risk of rain. All you need is a light jacket.
