Christmas river parade-best seats?

We will be in San Antonio for the Thanksgiving holidays & plan to get tickets for the Christmas parade on the river. While we know the configuration of the river we've never been to the parade so have no idea about the best places to try for seats. The seats at the Arneson River Theater are $25, & there's mention of a TV broadcast from there. Is that good, or bad? Any advice appreciated!

Those are very good seats. Another option ist to book a table at a restaurant on the river. That way you can enjoy a meal and drinks along with the parade.

My husband and I will be doing the same thing and love your suggestion to watch the parade while having dinner. Now, however, we need your suggestions for which restaurants have the best seating. Thanks!

The Little Rhien Steakhouse and the Fig Tree both have patios that "step" down to the river like a theater (located beside the Arneson). I've never watched the parade from there, so not sure what they offer. They also are higher end choices. There used to be a couple of restaurants with balconies that were great for viewing, one was the Paloma Blanca - but there was an extra charge for the seating.
