Windcrest Light Up
A tradition since the 1950s, San Antonio residents and visitors enjoy viewing the dazzling Christmas lights in the City of Windcrest annual Light Up. Thousands drive through the Windcrest streets in awe of the amazing Christmas light displays. A contest is held by the city to select the most beautifully decorated homes in various categories prior to their opening ceremony in mid-December. To find all the best locations, you can print a map from the city's official website. It's not just the homes in Windcrest that participate; churches, schools and businesses also get involved. The streets of Windcrest get very crowded with spectators as Christmas approaches, so visit on a weeknight for less traffic. Windcrest is adjacent to the Interstate 35/Loop 410 interchange, just 15 minutes from downtown San Antonio.
