El Paso’s Eastridge Neighborhood Lights Up for Christmas
‘Tis the season for the annual slow drive through Eastridge.
2018 marks the 54th year residents of the east El Paso subdivision adorn their homes and yards in Christmas lights and holiday displays for the enjoyment of the entire community – a tradition that began as a friendly competition between two neighbors back in 1964.
It may not have the wow-factor of Fred Loya's synchronized light show, or be as romantic and photo-friendly as downtown's Winterfest displays, but even now all these decades later, cars still line up on many a chilly December night waiting their turn to cruise the neighborhood located just off McRae.
While bigger, brighter, and new is all good, there's still something to be said for Old School decorations and traditions.
