Thousands of people gathered on the campus of Texas Tech University Friday night and they were all there for one reason...to see the campus glow in the Carol of Lights.
The theme this year was "Shining Through the Night". And that they did, with 25,000 bulbs strung around the 13 buildings along Memorial Circle. The ceremony began with a concert and ended with a parade.
That parade led the Lights on Broadway event. Dozens of floats participated in this year's parade with the best of show going to United Supermarkets in the commercial category and Ballet Folkorico in the non-commercial category.
The Texas Tech Equestrian Center, two Girl Scouts troops and the Medlock family also received awards for display of lights, decorations and musical presentation.
