UIW’s Annual Light the Way Celebration is Changing…


San Antonio – The University of the Incarnate Word’s (UIW) annual holiday celebration, Light the Way, sponsored by H-E-B, is changing. The kick-off celebration which is usually held in Benson Stadium on the UIW campus will now be held in the front of campus (4301 Broadway) and take on more of a festival-type atmosphere.

The event, scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 18, will still feature performances by the choirs and performance groups of UIW and the Brainpower Connection schools but guests can also enjoy a Food Truck Yard, the Kids’ Corner where guests can take selfies with Santa, have free cookies and cocoa and take part in activities brought to us by our friends at the DoSeum. Guests also will have the opportunity to get a jump start on their Christmas shopping from various local vendors at the Holiday Shoppe.

The event will begin with a kick-off ceremony at 6:30 p.m. hosted by KSAT12’s Steve Spriester. The lights will be turned on immediately following the ceremony so guests can enjoy the night’s entertainment under the twinkling lights. Performances will fill the night air with the sounds of Christmas, while the offerings from the food trucks will add aromas to make your mouths water.

The evening will conclude with a fireworks show for all to enjoy. Admission is free and limited parking is available on campus. Overflow parking will be available on the AT&T lot across Hildebrand. Once again, we will be collecting new unused toys for the Elf Louise Project. For all your Light the Way 2017 information visit

Mark your calendars, you won’t want to miss it!
