New Plaza Displays, Winterfest Light Up Downtown El Paso

Want festive yuletide photos for your Instagram? Looking for a real Christmassy background to Snapchat from?

Look no further than San Jacinto Plaza in downtown El Paso. The city purchased all-new lighting, displays, and accessories this year and lit the park up!

The “bigger, better and brighter” holiday lighting and decor includes more than 400,000 mini-lights adorning everyone of the 120 trees, and a new 30-foot artificial tree with 900 ornaments and 18,400 mini-lights.

Even the Afghan pine that has served as the city’s living Christmas tree for years has been tricked out with 455, 3ft falling snowflake light tubes.

Additionally, several 9-foot tall lighted displays in the shapes of a gift box, star and ornament, and a large walk-through tunnel have been added making the plaza one of the best, if not the best, place to take Christmas selfies.

If the plaza isn’t enough picture-taking for you, just walk across the street to the Arts Festival Plaza down by the Plaza Theatre. There you’ll find a 25-foot Christmas tree, and 6-foot snow globe — both offer great photo opportunities, but especially the life-size snow globe which you can pose inside of.

Both San Jacinto Plaza and the Arts Festival Plaza will remain decked out through January 8.
