'Sneak Peek: River of Lights Tomorrow Evening' on Social Media Club - San Antonio!
Wed. November 28 2012
7:00pm - 9:00pm
The San Antonio River Authority (SARA) would like to invite the media to a sneak preview of a newer holiday tradition on the San Antonio River -- The Museum Reach River of Lights. (SARA maintains and operates the 1.3-mile Museum Reach segment of the San Antonio River). The lights will be available for public viewing on December 1 with a variety of entertainment along the Museum Reach but we want to give the media the chance to experience it first! A barge will be available for those that want a river view of the artistic lighting. Three years ago, SARA and its title sponsor, CPS Energy, first invited the public to participate in The Museum Reach River of Lights. The lighting has grown over the short period to consist of 100 vibrant multi-colored underwater lights accented by energy-efficient fiber optic lighting elements that provide a kaleidoscope of changing color to the water features along the Museum Reach. Alternating lamp posts are wrapped with energy-saving LED holiday lights, and colored gels have been placed in lamp posts, hand rails and boat landing bollards to add even more holiday color. LED holiday light strands will also drape across the river for the barge riders to travel under as the lights glisten off the water for optimal color!
