H-E-B and VIA partner to offer complimentary rides to the annual tree lighting ceremony downtown.

SAN ANTONIO — The annual H-E-B tree lighting ceremony will return this year to Travis Park on on Friday, Nov. 26 with VIA offering complimentary rides, according to a press release.  

The tree lighting ceremony begins at 6 p.m. when H-E-B will light more than 10,000 lights on the nearly 50-foot Christmas tree. 

VIA passengers should inform the bus operator that they are attending the H-E-B tree lighting ceremony to ride fare-free.

Last year the event was held virtually on YouTube for the first time due to COVID.
