The Downtown El Paso Christmas Tree lighting happens Saturday night!  The weather is going to be great!  The high will be 73 degrees, so by the time the festivities kick off at 4:30, it should be perfect El Paso Christmas tree lighting weather!

Before you head out, you should click on the City's Parks and Recreation website for a complete program and parade route.  The tree will be lit around 5:50, and then the whole evening wraps up with fireworks!  It really is a great time for the whole family, so make plans to head out to San Jacinto Plaza this Saturday for the 77th Annual Christmas Tree Lighting.

I ran across this video on youtube video of Manny, a guy who really loves San Jacinto at Christmas!

He walks through the entire plaza and give his insight into the different decorated areas.  I love his love of our hometown, but I especially love the last 10 seconds of this video.  It's  little long, but definitely worth the click!  Enjoy the tree lighting Saturday night!
