Windcrest Light Up

Light Up Begins Saturday, December 4, 2021

The annual Windcrest Light Up is a decades-old tradition in which residents decorate their homes with elaborate displays of holiday lights. A contest is held to pick the most beautifully decorated homes in various judging categories and the public is invited to drive along neighborhood streets to view the brightly-lit displays. This event is made possible through volunteers from Windcrest Women’s Club and the City of Windcrest.

Thousands of visitors from San Antonio and the surrounding area come to see the free lighting event every year. Light Up begins with an opening ceremony in December running through New Year’s Eve, December 31, 2021.

For 2021, enjoy the array of colors as homes represent this year's Light Up themes.
