Nativity Installation Begins at San Jacinto Plaza

El Paso, Texas - The City of El Paso has held its annual Holiday Light Display at Cleveland Square for the last three years, and this year the beautiful holiday lights returned to San Jacinto Plaza, with one noticeable difference.

The Nativity Scene that is typically displayed each year in the City's Holiday Light Display was taken out of the design at the San Jacinto Plaza this year. Instead, the Plaza has been lit by thousands of white lights and a new tree, with colorful bulbs and ornaments.

The City held their annual Festival Of Lights Christmas tree lighting ceremony on Saturday, and many El Pasoans were not happy with the absence of the traditional Nativity Scene. On Monday, the City changed their stance on the Nativity and announced that they'd be installing the display this week after all.

“The City of El Paso will install the nativity scene that’s been displayed at San Jacinto Plaza as part of a longtime tradition. The nativity scene will be visible as you drive on North Mesa. We hope everyone will have a chance to visit the Plaza and see the spectacular lights and decorations on display through January 8.” said Interim Managing Director Quality of Life, Dionne Mack.

Tuesday, workers began installing the Nativity which will be completely operational by this weekend.
