Great Weather, Huge Crowd Expected for Tonight's Cavaliers River Parade

Absolutely perfect weather is set for tonight's King Antonio's River Parade, one of the time honored traditions of Fiesta, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

Parade Marshal Scott Allen Christy says tonight's theme will be 'Showtime in San Antonio.'

The thirty floats will celebrate entertainment, from movies to TV shows to music and sports.

"We have a lot of live music on them, and the once that don't have bands will have big time sound systems on them with awesome playlists.

King Antonio, real estate executive Roger Hill III, will lead the Texas Cavaliers and the floats down the river in front of 250,000 spectators. It is the largest regularly scheduled water borne parade in America.

"This is our 75th Texas Cavaliers River Parade," Christy said. "We are celebrating the 75th time that the King will lead the parade down the river. It allows us to give away mor than $1.5 million do children's charities in 2019."

The major recipient of the Cavaliers charity this year is Morgan's Wonderland, the world recognized theme park for people with disabilities. A total of 67 children's organizations will benefit from tonight's parade.

The honorary grand marshal is the epitome of 'showtime' in San Antonio, veteran rodeo clown Leon Coffee.
