El Paso News

El Paso, Texas (KTSM) – Downtown Fiesta de Las Luces is coming back at the end of this month with music, food trucks and vendors.

The Downtown Management District (DMD) will be hosting the event on South El Paso Street (Paisano to Fourth Avenue).

The Downtown Fiesta de Las Luces will take place Saturday evenings under the lights of the Paseo de Las Luces. Sunday afternoons will celebrate the local culture with food trucks serving Mexican fare, mariachis, folklorico, vendors and family friendly activities.

“Our retail community is recovering from a challenging year so creating an opportunity to showcase the area is key to maintaining growth. Attracting people to businesses in the El Centro District, celebrating this historic corridor, highlighting the Paseo de las Luces improvement, and providing another opportunity to engage the public with our Downtown is at the top of our list for this event series as we move into summer months,” said Joe Gudenrath, DMD Executive Director.

The Downtown Fiesta de Las Luces is free to the public and will be located between Paisano and Fourth Avenue on El Paso Street.

The rustically art deco archways stretch down El Paso Street from the Paso del Norte international bridge to San Antonio Avenue. String lights illuminate the corridor at night with parklets strategically placed to compliment the eclectic mix of small businesses unique to the El Centro Shopping District.
