Last Weekend for San Jacinto Plaza’s Holly, Jolly Christmas Lights
This weekend will be the final weekend to walk among the festive holiday lights and decor at San Jacinto Plaza.
Sunday, January 7, 2018, will be the last day to snap those photos in front of the city’s tricked out living Christmas tree, or Snapchat a message with one of the lighted displays in the shape of a gift box, star and ornament in the background.
After the weekend it will all get packed up and put away until December, according to a City of El Paso Parks and Recreation Department press release.
The holiday decorations for The Celebration of Lights, which also includes more than 400,000 mini-lights adorning every one of the 120 trees, a nativity scene, a 30-foot artificial tree with 900 ornaments and 18,400 mini-lights, and a large walk-through tunnel has made San Jacinto Plaza one of the best, if not the best, place to take Christmassy selfies and group photos.
The lights will be turned on daily through Sunday from 5:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m.
