No one is predicting a white Christmas for San Antonio, no one except Cameo Theatre, a local theater troupe that is putting on a production based on the 1954 musical starring Danny Kaye and Bing Crosby.

Cameo manager Jim Zaccariah talks about their production of "White Christmas."

"It’s got a large cast of 25 people. A large ensemble cast," said Zacchariah, who said the group has more or less followed the movie plot, but with a few twists.

“They’ve added more Irving Berlin songs, so if you’re an Irving Berlin fan, this is the musical for you,” he said.

You’re down on the River Walk, the barges floating by, when all of a sudden you see a barge floating by full of Christmas carolers.

“It is one of the most fun things that we do all year long," said Nancy Hunt, executive director of the Paseo Del Rio Association.

“We provide barges that people can rent. You can bring a church caroling group or a boy scout troop or a girl scout troop. And you board the barge and you sing carols along the River Walk," Hunt said.

Wow! Talk about a San Antonio holiday.

Christmas In San Antonio And South Texas

Texas Matters: The holidays are a time of stories. There is the divine story of the birth of Jesus and the almost infinite volume of personal stories from each of our families. There's the story of the magic of Christmas seen a child's eyes, then told many years later after that child became an adult. Texas Matters pauses to listen to those stories and we encourage you to tell your stories to your loved ones.

Swim With The Elves is a holiday event for San Antonio kids that is like no other.

"We’re inviting kids to come out and join us. It’s on Saturday, December 14, from noon to 2 p.m." said Hank Salinas, the assistant parks and recreation manger. "Children 12 and under are invited but 10 and under must be accompanied by adults."

If you’re wondering whether or not you can work in another costly Christmas event, good news from Hank.

"It is a free event, and we’d like the families to come out, the parents to come out and enjoy themselves too,"  Salinas said.
