Holiday Festivities Light Up Mackenzie Park

A two-mile drive through Mackenzie Park may keep local charities in business this holiday season.

Lights In The Canyon is struggling in it's second year. The event needs to draw 8,000 more cars before December 28th in order to help fund the 4th on Broadway celebration and five other charities this season. Coordinator Stephanie Allison says, "If the event does not come through this year, it's a big possibility we won't be able to do anything like this again in Lubbock."

This week, the event benefits Oakwood Baptist Church. Next week, part of the proceeds will go to Interfaith Hospitality. Lights in the Canyon is an illuminated drive through Mackenzie Park. It runs nightly through December 28th, for only $8 per car.

At the end of Lights in the Canyon, you'll find Santa Land. Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus are coming to town, December 10th. You can enjoy a visit with the guests of honor, take in live music and feast on seasonal favorites like hot chocolate. Santa Land opens at Mackenzie Park Wednesday night at 6pm. It's open nightly through December 23rd from 6pm - 10pm. Admission is free however you can purchase pictures with Santa for $5 each.
