Bring the family to Mackenzie Park, and enjoy a long-time Lubbock tradition! You are invited to Santa Land’s Opening Ceremony on December 10 at 6 p.m. Lubbock City Council members will welcome Santa and Mrs. Claus from the North Pole, turn on the Christmas lights in the winter village and officially open Santa Land.
Santa Land is open every evening from December 10-23 from 6 to 10 p.m. nightly. Approximately 46,000 people visit Santa Land each year to see the festive holiday village with its huge lighted Christmas tree, animated displays, bonfires, traditional holiday scenes and of course, Santa and Mrs. Claus. Each evening at 6 p.m., a sleigh with reindeer bring Santa and Mrs. Claus to Santa Land to hear the Christmas wishes.
Families can enjoy live entertainment most evenings from 6:30-8 p.m. Hot chocolate and other refreshments are available for sale at the concession stand. For those who forget their cameras, keepsake digital photos may be purchased for $5 each. The entrance to Santa Land is located off of the East Broadway entrance into Mackenzie Park just east of Avenue A and the South Plains Fairgrounds.
