The Downtown Management District (DMD) adds to the holiday synergy in downtown El Paso with a bit of tradition. For the third year in a row, the DMD will host the mistletoe kiss ceremony in front of the Plaza Theatre on Saturday, December 10, 2016 at 6pm. Featured guests for the Christmas kick-off kiss are Congressman Beto O’Rourke and wife Amy O’Rourke!
As guests gather at the spot starting at 5:30pm, leading to the 6pm ceremony, singer Elia Esparza, known for her blazing rendition of Selena’s “Como la Flor” on The Voice, will warm the crowd with an intimate set of Christmas songs.
This year the DMD has partnered with Visit El Paso and the Big Media Kringle Kafé to offer hot chocolate to a limited number of first arrivals. In addition, El Paso mascots Amigoman and Chico the Chihuahua will be present to energize the crowd and provide photo opportunities.
The DMD is also hosting an online holiday giveaway promotion, giving the public a chance to win gift certificates and gifts from downtown businesses, such as: Mac’s Place Downtown, Imperio Real Boutique, Krystal Jeans, and Visit El Paso.
Ten skate passes for WinterFest will be given over the course of the next few weeks in addition to gift certificates and gifts from the above sponsors!
