Thanks to KSAT 12 for providing this great list of reasons to "Fall Hard" for Fall in San Antonio.
September is one of my favorite months because it’s the start of fall and the beginning of less sizzling weather but very sizzling attractions and events. Technically fall doesn’t officially start until the autumnal equinox on Sept. 22 but pumpkin-flavored goodies have already hit the shelves and the ever-coveted pumpkin Spice latte is back at Starbucks. Here’s to hoping the fall is cooler than this scorching summer has been and that it brings a little rain.
Here’s a list of some of the events going on in the San Antonio area in September:
- Labor Day River Walk Artisan Show - Experience the beauty of the San Antonio River Walk at the Artisan Show taking place from Sept. 2-5. Hours vary by day but this event is free to attend. Shop from more than 40 handmade artisan booths, including pottery, textiles, jewelry, woodwork, paintings, bead work, and more
- Ford Parade of Lights - Big, beautiful lanterns will light up the River Walk from Sept. 2-4 and on Sept. 11. The lanterns will launch, weather permitting, from the International Center at 203 S. St. Mary’s Street at 8 p.m. and are expected to complete their trip by 10 p.m. each night. This event series is free and family-friendly.
