Santa Land opens for 53 consecutive years

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - For the 53rd consecutive year, Santa Land will light up the Lubbock night with Christmas trees, children singing, twinkling lights and Santa and Mrs. Claus ready to hear the Christmas dreams of area children.

An opening ceremony to welcome the Clauses, light the 60-foot Christmas tree, and officially open Santa Land will be held on Thursday, December 10 at 6:00 p.m. Children from Lubbock and surrounding communities are invited to be a part of this special evening. Santa Land is open 14 consecutive nights on December 10-23, 2009 from 6:00-10:00 p.m. nightly, and as always, Santa Land is free to the public.

For visits with Santa, parents are encouraged to bring their children early in the evening as the line is stopped on busy nights at approximately 9:00 p.m. or earlier depending on the crowd. Enjoy live entertainment most evenings from 6:30-8:00 p.m. Hot chocolate and other refreshments are available for sale at the concession stand.

Parents are welcome to bring cameras and video cameras to take photos of their children with Santa at no charge.
