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."
