Eva Longoria grand marshal for SA River Parade
SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- "Desperate Housewife" star Eva Longoria will serve as this year's grand marshal of the Texas Cavaliers River Parade during San Antonio's Fiesta, the biggest event of the Alamo City's social calendar.
The Cavaliers website says about 250.000 people are expected to watch decorated barges from the banks of the San Antonio River downtown.
Longoria tells the San Antonio Express-News that she "applauds them for taking the tradition and combining it with a philanthropic effort like children's charities." The proceeds from the parade will go to over 40 charities, including Longoria's own Eva's Heroes.
About 17,000 tickets are available for $10 to $25, but most spectators will watch the river floats for free from hotels, restaurants and other public areas along the river.
