First Time Ever the Celebration of Holiday Lights Takes Place before Thanksgiving

El PASO Christmas Tree

The holiday season is upon us.  It’s time to reflect on the things that we did or were hoping to do at the beginning of the year.

 

It’s also time to reflect on moving forward to embrace new changes.

 

For El Paso residents or those who happen to be in El Paso during the holiday season, for the first time ever, the century-old tradition of celebrating holiday lights happened before Thanksgiving.

 

Thousands of people came together to enjoy more than 400, 000 mini lights adorning 120 trees in and around San Jacinto Plaza.

 

Holiday lights can be pretty pricey. This year’s holiday celebration welcomes a new sponsor, Scherr Legate PLLC Attorneys at Law.

 

Downtown El Paso would look empty and pale without the traditional Christmas tree.

The giant, 55-foot live tree clustered with colorful ornaments, vendors and of course, Winter Fest, shared the spotlight with numerous attractions, like Santa and Mrs. Claus. Thousands of excited and happy children took photos with Santa all afternoon and evening.

 

Winterfest will continue operation until January 6th. Being situated between the El Paso Museum of Art and the Plaza Theatre, it shined under white and blue lights illuminating the skating rink.

 

This is where families skated while enjoying the performance of folkloric dancers, spicing up the happiest moments.

Spending a couple of days in beautifully decorated El Paso will lift up your mood and will create happy holiday season memories.

 

And one more thing. Happy Holiday Season doesn’t have to be expensive. The city of El Paso has plenty of food choices even for people on the budget.

 

Before you pack for El Paso, make sure you have enough information about affordable food places.

Regardless of how and where you will celebrate Thanksgiving, we wish you joyful and colorful holidays.

Let’s not forget that we are going to celebrate another holiday much sooner.

 

Happy Thanksgiving!
