Each year, the lighting of the Christmas Tree in downtown El Paso is one of the city's signature events. Tens of thousands of people descended upon downtown El Paso for the 79th annual Celebration of Lights sponsored by Evolve Federal Credit Union. In addition to the lighting of the Christmas Tree, the Celebration of Lights also includes a parade through downtown El Paso and a spectacular fireworks show. With San Jacinto Plaza still under construction for its renovation project, the lighting of the tree was held for the final time at Cleveland Square.
