Lights in the Canyon Illuminate Lubbock Holidays

After weeks of prepping and setting up you'll finally be able to see it. "It  is so spectacular and theres not one of these within 100 miles," says event co-chair Dawn Murphy.  Dawn is talking about the new Lights in the Canyon event at Mackenzie Park. Starting Tuesday night, you and your family can enjoy everything from Santa's sleigh to colorful castles.

"Well it doesn't exclude anybody, it's for the whole family, your kids, your grandma," says Executive Director, Stephanie Allison.   The new Lights in the Canyon replaced the Lights on Broadway parade for several reasons. First of all, this event lasts 36 straight nights instead of just one.  "We're going to be open Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years," says Allison. 

Lights in the Canyon is a two mile long drive thru event, so if it rains or snows you'll be in your car. Organizers say they want this to become a regional holiday tradition eventually reaching people in New Mexico. "I'm so excited about this event, we've been waiting for this for a long time," says Murphy. 

The event is from November 26th through December 31st.   It runs from 6 to 10 p.m..  It's $8 a car and you can enter through Broadway.
