If so for how long? I heard something about this on the radio today. Seems like bad timing being New Year's and all. Maybe I heard wrong.

They drain it today, I believe... Before moving here we had some friends who came to San Antonio for their anniversary, and found out once they were here it was the week the river was drained!!

From the Riverwalk website -

Michelob ULTRA River Walk Mud Festival
1/10/2008 - 1/13/2008
Held for one week in January to celebrate the draining of the San Antonio River for maintenance by the Parks & Recreation Department. This year the City of San Antonio Parks and Recreation Department has scheduled the draining of the River from January 2-9. ********** The actual Mud Festival is held after the River is filled back up. Civic & Media personalities vie for the title of the Michelob Ultra Mud Queen & Mud King by competing to see who can raise the most quarter votes for the Association. The celebration features: Michelob Ultra Mud Pie Ball, Michelob Ultra Mud Coronation, Michelob Ultra Mud Parade, and an Arts & Crafts Show. Estimated Attendance: 15,000. Applications for the Arts & Crafts Show are due by December 17, 2007. "

It's actually the best time of year as far as tourism goes. Most people come here for the Alamo Bowl, or Christmas to see the lights, but after the new year begins, people are back to work and tourism dies down a bit until the spring conventions start.
