Light Your Way to Holiday Magic

Holiday magic lights up on San Antonio's famed River Walk with more than 1 million twinkling LED lights, festivals and parades, celebrating the spirit of the season. And, Hotel Contessa is the holiday gateway to some of the city's most celebrated festivities! Couples and families alike will revel in the annual Holiday River Parade & Lighting the day after Thanksgiving when illuminated river barges with celebrities, bands and lavishly costumed participants delight audiences along the River Walk.

Every weekend in December more than 6,000 luminarias are lit along the River Walk symbolically marking the lighting of the way for the Holy Family. The annual tree lighting in the Alamo Plaza is another holiday favorite, all within steps of Hotel Contessa! For information on our Holiday Lights Package call 866-435-0900 or click here.
