Want To See Christmas Lights In El Paso? Better Read This First
There are lots of ways to enjoy beautiful Christmas light displays in El Paso this Christmas season.
There are a couple of new lighting displays around El Chuco this year to see with your friends and family. Especially those that are just visiting.
The rest of us get a little spoiled by seeing these year after year but visitors will not only love them, they'll keep you from getting grinchy and ignoring them.
East Ridge is, arguably, the biggest and probably oldest lighting display in El Paso. We'll save that for last and look at a couple of newer attractions first.
The Magic Of Lights
First, and newest, is the Magic Of Lights at Camp Cohen Waterpark in the north east. All the peeps you can fit into your car get to roll through it for one price.
Being that it's a "drive through" display, you stay warm and comfy in your car while you take 'em all in. You can, of course, pick up drinks or snacks to bring with you too.

The city of El Paso always goes big downtown at Winterfest in San Jacinto Plaza, turning the whole park into a true winter wonderland ... in the desert.
Finally, East Ridge
An El Paso tradition for decades, peeps from all over the Borderland flock to this neighborhood on the east side.
The residents of East Ridge practically compete with each other to see who can set up the biggest, coolest, most elaborate, Clark Griswold-ish display.
There are 3 different entrances to East Ridge - McRae @ Cartway, Deby Lewis @ Glemmway Place, (behind Eastwood High School) and Wedgewood @ Fenway.
If you prefer to walk through the neighborhood, you can park on Deby Lewis Drive.
