Where to Look at Christmas Lights in El Paso
Chilly nights, Christmas lights; it’s the holiday season in El Paso! Here’s where to find the festive light displays around town:
Fred Loya Christmas Light Show – The nine minute light show, which features over 230,000 lights set to music, cranks up three times a night every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Additional shows will take place on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Mr. Loya’s house is located on the East side at 120001 Paseo de Oro, one block north of Montwood, off Bob Mitchell. You can check out a video of last year’s show, plus a map to the house, and other details HERE.
Eastridge Christmas lights – The residents of the Eastside subdivision of Eastridge have been participating in the neighborhood-wide holiday lights display for many, many years. The subdivision is off McRae Blvd; turn west on Eastridge.
Downtown – The San Jacinto Plaza’s spectacular Christmas tree and displays have lit up the downtown night for many, many years — but not this year. Because the plaza is currently being renovated, the lights have moved to Cleveland Square, between the El Paso Museum of History and the downtown library. The the 50-foot tree, however, hasn’t. Instead, a 35 foot pole has been decorated and made to look like a Christmas tree.
The Shawver Park Light Display – The Lower Valley park, located at 8100 Independence Dr., gets the Christmas treatment for the first time ever beginning this year. Thirty four lighting displays are lit from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. nightly with musical entertainment each Friday evening beginning at 5:00 p.m.
Cumberland Circle – Luminarias and Christmas lights adorn the central El Paso neighborhood circle each Christmas Eve. From I-10, take Trowbridge northwest to Pennsylvania Ave. Pennsylvania leads directly into the circle.
