City officials are inviting community members to enjoy the final weekend of the WinterFest season before it wraps up on Sunday, January 5.
Festivities begin from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. To close out the season, a unique Rosca de Reyes or Three Kings read and ride event on the El Paso Streetcar will take place at 5 p.m. on Sunday, January 5.
Beginning at 4 p.m., visitors can get a free piece of Three Kings Cake at the Main Public Library downtown and then ride the streetcar and enjoy holiday stories.
Visitors who take part in the read and ride event will get an opportunity to win four free tickets to see Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (Touring) LIVE at the Plaza Theater.
Riders will also be able to get a free ticket to ride the El Paso Locomotive FC Sun City Express train on the pedestrian pathway (area between the ballpark and convention center).
The festive lights at the plaza will remain lit until January 5, and will return in November 2020.
