Mark Your Calendars: Light the Way 2017 is Nov. 18!

We are counting down the weeks until Nov. 18! Light the Way is UIW’s annual holiday event where the San Antonio community is invited to enjoy music, Santa, a spectacular firework show and the famous flip of the switch that turns on the gorgeous twinkling lights around campus!

This year’s format is going to be different than before. The theme is “Holiday Festival,” which will allow for a fun and interactive experience. A ceremony will kick-off the event at 6:30 p.m. followed immediately by the turning on of the lights. This will allow guests time to enjoy performances and activities under the lights. The festival will include:

  • The Holiday Shoppe: Get a jumpstart on your Christmas shopping list by visiting various vendors
  • Kid’s Corner: Take selfies with Santa! This area will also feature exciting activities from our friends at the DoSeum and free cookies and cocoa.
  • Food Truck Yard: Hungry? Visit food trucks from the San Antonio Food Truck Association for great bites!

Remember to get to UIW early as parking can fill up fast! The ceremony will begin at 6:30 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 18, in front of the Kelso Art Center located in the front of campus at the corner of Broadway and Hildebrand. The lights will remain lit and campus will be open for self-guided tours beginning at dusk every night after Nov. 18 through Saturday, Jan. 6, 2018.
