And the time of year we’ve been waiting for is here! It’s the most wonderful time of the year! With the wintery weather that we’ve been having and the holiday spirit beginning to course through the veins of folks everywhere, what better way to get into the spirit than to experience the San Antonio area’s most spectacular display of outdoor Christmas lights?
Old West Christmas Light Fest at Enchanted Springs Ranch is so much more than just an incredible outdoor Christmas lights display, and it has new activities and events that will please every member of your family. From grandpa to grumpy teenagers, we have you covered.
With fun, games, events, and the “big man in red” himself, prepare to have your mind blown at all of the fun and merriment that awaits you at this uniquely Texas Christmas experience in the Hill Country! Old West Christmas Light Fest is celebrating its sixth year so, in honor of the sixth year of the event (and our second year at picturesque Enchanted Springs Ranch), here are six reasons why you simply MUST visit Old West Christmas Light Fest in 2019!
1. A Synchronized Light Show
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably remember the amazing synchronized light show that made the Hinojosa family (earworm alert!) of Boerne nationally famous. This year, the Hinojosa family is coming to the Old West Christmas Light Fest and putting their musical talents to use at the ranch in an all-new Old West Light Show! Come witness, in person, this season’s viral sensation and listen for some local musical talents included in the playlist.
2. Laser Tag in the Lights
Do you know some grumpy teens (or grownups) who think they’re “too cool” to go look at Christmas lights with the family? Well, lure them to Old West Christmas Light Fest this year with the promise of an epic laser tag battle among the lights! What better way to burn off those cookies and take out your pent-up holiday aggression than a wholesome game of laser tag in the glow of Christmas lights?
3. Candyland Instagram
