If you can’t make it on the 2nd or would rather not attend an in-person event, a free drive-thru Cookies, Cocoa and Holiday Cheer will be held the following Friday at The Hospitals of Providence Transmountain Campus.

As in years past, the festive light show will be accompanied by cheerful holiday music, and will include special appearances from Santa and friends. The first 500 vehicles will receive holiday treats.

And while its presentation is different, the goal remains the same: to bring El Pasoans holiday cheer. And some cookies and cocoa, of course.
