Show Your Patriotism at This Special Parade Honoring Our Armed Forces

Join us for a free patriotic parade dedicated to the men and women who serve in all branches of the Armed Forces. Twenty-five star spangled floats carrying representatives of all 5 branches of the military. Patriotic and American-themed rock music is played from the floats throughout the 2 1/2 mile downtown parade route on the River Walk.

The theme for the 2018 Armed Forces River Parade is Military City USA in honor of the rich military history in San Antonio as we celebrate our city's tricentennial. Each float will feature American themes and music.

This is one of the largest Parades held on the River Walk. It is televised live in San Antonio on KMYS CW 35 and then replayed on WOAI and KABB around the 4th of July. It is syndicated in over 90 markets throughout the United States including the Pentagon Channel.

Make a reservation at your favorite River Walk patio for prime viewing of the parade. You are also welcome to bring folding chairs and sit along the parade route. Please do not block pedestrian traffic Come out early to secure a good spot. The parade is approximately 1-hour in length from when you see the first float. The parade is FREE. Don't forget to pick-up a FREE copy of the official souvenir program for the parade.
