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.
