Rounding off our list of holiday hoopla are these last events for the families that are looking for something a little different.

Ford Holiday Boat Caroling

Free, 6:15pm-9:15pm, the River Walk,

Kid’s Gingerbread Too!
Does your kid have a fit every time you pass a cookie kiosk in the mall? If yes, then they’ll love the San Antonio Children’s Museum’s Kid’s Gingerbread Too! event.
