Christmas is about to come early for all the kids of Lubbock. And children of all ages are invited to celebrate the grand opening of the Legacy Play Village. Over the past few weeks, playground organizers have been making up for lost work time during the rainy days of October. There is still light construction under way. Final installation of donor plaques, signage, entry gate, etc. are expected to be complete by the end of January.
So Friday at 3:00 p.m. sharp, Santa Claus will make a spectacular arrival via helicopter at McAlister Park, at Spur 327 and the Brownfield Highway.
All volunteers are encouraged to claim their tools between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. Any tools left behind will be donated or auctioned after the weekend. Commemorative t-shirts will also be available.
