Candlelight at the Ranch

National Ranching Heritage Center

Step into a “living Christmas card” in Lubbock, where the National Ranching Heritage Center’s annual Candlelight at the Ranch re-creates a frontier prairie holiday scene. The center’s trails glow with more than 3,000 luminarias during the event (6-9 p.m. December 11-12) while reenactors depict Christmas festivities in about 15 of the center’s 19th-Century structures. There’s also an old-time fiddle dance in the 6666 barn and carolers strolling the grounds. In the center’s main gallery, Santa Claus visits with children and Brazos West plays cowboy Christmas music.
