Scherr Legate Presents Celebration of Lights Parade and lighting ceremony returns to Downtown El Paso. Celebrating 21-years, the spectacular nighttime parade features more than 60 attractions and walking groups adorned in lights.
This year, the city’s only light parade has been extended a half mile for a total of 1.5 miles. The new route includes part of the Segundo Barrio neighborhood and the famed Paseo de Las Luces (El Paso Street). The parade starts on Texas Street, winds through Segundo Barrio and Paseo de las Luces, through San Jacinto Plaza, and then continues back to Texas Street.
The traditional lighting of San Jacinto Plaza is set for 5:55 p.m. as Mayor Dee Margo and Jase Canales of Candlelighters of El Paso flip the ceremonial switch with the Celebration of Lights Parade to follow. San Jacinto Plaza will be filled with more than 400,000 mini lights adorning 120 trees. The lights at San Jacinto Plaza will shine daily from 5:30 p.m. through 1 a.m. through January 6.
