El Paso Airport Lights Up November in Honor of High School Homecomings
The El Paso International Airport will continue honoring the 2020 high school homecoming season that never was with its Night Lights series.
Because of the pandemic, El Paso-area high schools have had to forego traditional homecoming activities this year. So, "in honor of our community’s students, parents, and alumni who cannot celebrate their High School’s Homecoming this year" ELP began lighting up its walkways in school colors last month.
Riverside, Americas, Franklin, and Chapin were among the 27 El Paso high schools from the Ysleta, Socorro, and El Paso ISD the airport lit up for in October.
November Night Lights will honor the other area school districts, including those in Las Cruces and Southern New Mexico, as well as UTEP, NMSU, and EPCC. Each night a different school's colors will illuminate the landscaping, walkways, and lobby. You can check out the daily schedule for November Night Lights below
Students, parents and alumni are encouraged to take advantage of our comfortable November evenings by masking up and visiting the airport to take photos when their school colors are being featured, and a leisurely, socially distanced stroll on the newly landscaped plaza walkway and walking paths featuring some pretty cool public art. Parking available in the airport short term parking lot for $1 per hour.
