SAN ANTONIO — The Texas Cavaliers River Parade theme and Grand Marshal were announced Monday morning.

The theme is 2020 vision and the Grand Marshal is retired Spurs, member of Big Three, Tony Parker.

The announcement came from the Texas Cavaliers, a 600-member volunteer organization founded on supporting childrens' charities.

Each year, the organization appoints a new parade marshal. They also oversee the design of the official Fiesta River Parade medal.

There's nothing quite like the Texas Cavaliers River Parade. Festive music fills the air and vibrant floats pass by as thousands watch from the banks of the San Antonio River. This one-of-a-kind parade started in 1941 after a group of Texas Cavaliers witnessed boats and barges decorated with flowers in the "floating gardens" of Mexico City.
