Over 1000 people gathered on the San Antonio River in the heart of downtown San Antonio for the 22 Annual Chanukah on the River celebration.
Hundreds of people cruised down the river in special boats outfitted with Menorahs. Skits with actors depicting scenes from the Chanukah story were scattered along the river boat route. The boats arrived to the Arneson River Theatre to sounds of mariachis playing Jewish music giving the celebration a unique Texas flavor.
Mayor Ron Nirenberg brought greetings from the city of San Antonio, and the Maccabeats entertained the crowd with a memorable concert.
