With a flip of a switch El Paso welcomed the winter holidays.

The 2019 El Paso WinterFest returned to Downtown on Saturday, Nov. 23, with the Scherr Legate Celebration of Lights Parade and Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony at San Jacinto Plaza.

WinterFest runs daily through Jan. 5 with the holiday lights, ice-skating, train rides, entertainment, shopping and food and drink vendors. Free holiday movies at the Plaza Theatre, Fiesta Fridays with live music, story hours at area libraries, Streetcar rides and events and much more are also part of the fun.

Celebrating its fourth year, WinterFest is presented by the Hospitals of Providence and Providence Children’s Hospital.
