Christmas comes to WaKeeney Saturday

Posted Nov 24, 2020 11:27 PM

The 70th annual Christmas lighting ceremony in WaKeeney will take place on Saturday, November 28.

Activities begin at 9:00 a.m. and continue throughout the day with the lighting ceremony beginning at 6:00 p.m.

Santa will arrive and light the 35 ft. tree and then proceed down the street to his new house in the North Pole.

Throughout the day there will be many free activities, such as a Christmas Bazaar, “Timeless Holiday Tradition” display at the local museum, “A Christmas Carol” puppet show, Nex-Tech Express train rides, horse-drawn wagon rides, live reindeer to view, and a soup supper.

Plans are to continue with the lighting ceremony with safety precautions. Many of the activities are outside. We are asking that everyone follow social distancing guidelines and wear masks, if required.

The tree and decorations will remain through January 1, 2021, so visitors can view our traditional Christmas scene any evening until then. The holiday tradition display will also remain at the Trego County Historical Museum until 2021.
