The light show is a little hard to schedule around all the other great things to see in downtown San Antonio, but it's worth the time and effort. I was amazed at the technology it took to perfectly match the video to the church surface....More

5 Georgia girls taking San Antonio by storm! This was the highlight of our trip! We told all fellow travelers we met about it. Seems like it is under publicized. So glad we experienced this show!

We caught the laser show on March 10th. They had problems with it the previous evening, so we were glad we could see it on Sunday. They have shows at 9, 9:30 and 10. Goes for about 25 minutes. The music and lasers are just...More

I'm not sure what the schedule is for the light show. Best to check the website or ask when you arrive at your destination. But it's definitely a don't miss free event!!!

Check the San Antonio / The Saga site. As far as I know it runs each week on Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 9am, 9:30pm, and 10pm. The light show is at the San Fernando Cathedral and lasts 24 minutes.
