EXPERIENCE THE HOLIDAY MAGIC AT FORD FIESTA DE LAS LUMINARIAS 2018
Every year, a stroll along the River Walk becomes a magical holiday experience with more than 2,000 Luminarias lighting your path. This century’s old tradition takes place over three weekends beginning this year on Friday, November 30. Each weekend on Friday, Saturday and Sunday the luminarias will be lit along a three mile stretch of the River Walk beginning at dusk each evening. The Ford Fiesta De Las Luminarias 2018 will be November 30 – December 2, December 7-9 and December 14-16.
Adding to the festive feel along the River Walk is the sweet harmony of the Ford Holiday Boat Carolers that float throughout the 2 1/2 miles in the downtown area of the River Walk from November 30 – December 21. Each night beginning at 6:15PM four to five boats carry a different group each hour performing live Christmas Carols as they float up and down the river. Bring the entire family and enjoy the holiday lights overhead, the luminarias at your feet, and the Ford Holiday Boat Carolers floating by while you stroll along the River Walk.
THE LUMINARIAS TRADITION
Luminarias are said to have originated from Spanish merchants who were impressed with the traditional paper lanterns of the Chinese culture and made their own version consisting of a candle set in sand inside a small paper bag. The Fiesta de Las Luminarias tradition dates back hundreds of years and was originally started on Christmas Eve to light the way for the Holy Family to arrive in Bethlehem. The annual Ford Fiesta De Las Luminarias event held along the River Walk is a wonderful celebration of this long-standing Christmas tradition. If you’d like to have some beautiful luminarias of your own to light the paths and walkways around your Sitterle Home, you can purchase them online at the River Walk store, https://sa-river-walk.myshopify.com/.
