SAN ANTONIO – To celebrate the holidays during a pandemic, San Antonio families have the option of bundling up and traveling to a variety of local drive-thru light displays.
They can now add Palo Alto College to their Christmas drive-thru bucket list.
The college, located on the South Side, will hold its second annual Winter Wonderland ¡Celebración! with a quarter-mile drive-thru featuring nearly 100,000 lights in 50 displays.
The route through campus will gleam from 6-9 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from Dec. 4 to Jan. 3, according to campus officials.
Enthusiasts can visit the light display for free but they must remain in their vehicles, as it is a drive-through event only. They can enter through Villaret Boulevard and exit at Loop 410 near the Performing Arts Center.
A virtual lighting ceremony will take place at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday.
Last year, the college kicked off their Winter Wonderland with an ice-skating rink, but events were forced to go virtual or socially distanced due to the pandemic.
