The day following thanksgiving was just us lounging around the park doing as little as possible. We knew trying to travel out into the city would be an absolute nightmare since it was black Friday. A little online shopping was all that we did, and even that wasn't much. Shirley will be getting a new exhaust header, mid-pipe, high flow catalytic converter, and Banks catback exhaust when we get home. There were also a pair of rear leaf springs and a new oil pump thrown in for good measure.
Trolling through internet for local events I stumbled upon the riverwalk holiday float parade. For those of you not in the know, San Antonio has an amazing riverwalk that wiggles through a few blocks downtown. We had actually spent some time on it during a prior trip to Texas back in 2015 which allowed us to skip the daytime madness of the holidays.
Our arrival was greeted with much fanfare. You need tickets for this show. Twenty bucks a pop in order for you and your loved ones to watch floats travel by with their generators running. Seems way overpriced for what you get. Katie found a spot just outside the gates overlooking the route and we were able to watch the show for free. Halfway through we decided we had enough. It was back into Shirley and off to the mall for a quick glance of some sale items. Then it was us returning home at 2100 to a quiet and dark park. This is way too late for us. We should already be in bed.
