In a kickoff to the holiday season, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso (TTUHSC El Paso) hosted its annual Cookies, Cocoa and Holiday Cheer event Friday, Dec. 1. Guests enjoyed a free light show, food and family-friendly festivities.
The light show — presented by the same team behind El Paso’s famous Fred Loya holiday home display — wowed the crowd. Soon after, the university lit up its own seasonal campus lights for the first time.
Kids and adults alike were invited to take photos with special guests Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus, the Grinch, Cindy Lou Who and the Snowflake Princesses from the movie “Frozen.”
Treats and apple cider were provided by Crave Kitchen and Bar and Hillside Donuts.
