There are many reasons to spend an evening at the River Walk, but this is one of the best: San Antonio’s 2015 Armed Forces River Parade on Saturday, May 16. One of the largest parades held on the river, this event is dedicated to the men and women of the armed forces—past, present and future.
Participants will enjoy 26 patriotic floats representing all five branches of military personnel and spanning all levels of rank. The parade is televised live locally and syndicated in 26 markets throughout the U.S., including the Pentagon Channel. The 2015 Grand Marshalls are three Medal of Honor recipients: Gen. Patrick Brady, Sgt. Santiago Erevia and Sgt. Clarence Sasser.
The 2015 Armed Forces River Parade spans more than two miles of the River Walk, including the Arneson Theatre. The event begins at 5 p.m. and continues until 7 p.m. For more information, visit www.thesanantonioriverwalk.com.
