- The San Antonio River Walk holiday lights will be switched on early again this year.
Typically, the holiday lights are switched on the day after Thanksgiving. River Walk officials last year decided to illuminate the Paseo del Rio early in 2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic as a way to spread some holiday cheer, the news station reports.
While the more than 2,250 strings with 100,000 lights will be turned on early, an official lighting ceremony will still take place during the Nov. 26 Ford Holiday River Parade.
