Santa Arrives on the South Plains

On Tuesday evening Santa Claus arrived on the South Plains, and  area residents gave him a huge welcome. The cactus Cuties welcome the crowds to Mackenzie Park for the grand opening of Santa Land.

Santa Land features a festive holiday village with a huge 60-foot lighted Christmas tree, animated displays, and much more. This is the 46th year, Mr. And Mrs. Claus have chosen Lubbock - to be their home away from home. "I'm really excited. Lubbock's one of my favorite cities to visit. It's not always too cold, so I don't get my colds, and the kids are great in Lubbock," said Santa Claus.

Santa Land continues at Mackenzie Park, now through December 23rd. Lights will be turned on nightly from 6 to 10 and admission is free.
