Star on the mountain goes dark to shine brighter


EL PASO, Texas - The iconic star on the mountain, a community treasure operated by The El Paso Chamber will be dark between September 23rd and September 30th.

“The star will be undergoing maintenance as part of our efforts to make sure it shines bright, always celebrating El Paso,” explained Andrea Hutchins, President and CEO of the Chamber.

She added, “We wanted to reassure the community that the star will return, even brighter on
October 1st.”

The light bulbs sit off the ground on a suspended wire system, laid out in the star
pattern, visible for miles around El Paso and from Ciudad Juárez.

The Star Program is run by the Chamber and is lit nightly to celebrate accomplishments by
individuals and organizations in the El Paso community.
