Christmas Village

Vado Speedway Park
Vado Speedway Park

The state-of-the-art track on I-10 between El Paso and Las Cruces has been transformed into the Vado Speedway Park Christmas Village featuring all the Yuletide must haves: twinkling Christmas lights, inflatables, holiday music, delicious treats, and appearances from Santa Claus, Buddy the Elf, Grinch, and Elsa who strikes an uncanny resemblance to the character in the “Frozen” movies.

Yes, this is a race track, but, no, this is not a drive-thru light show; it's a walk thru event on the concourse.

Along with the lights and other Christmas delights mentioned above, concessions are also a part of your evening stroll through the Christmas Village as are vendor booths with local artisans slinging their wares.
