The Downtown Christmas Parade In Lufkin, Texas Is Coming
The holidays are almost here, and there is a huge Lufkin tradition that you might want to be a part of. The City of Lufkin Christmas Parade is on Monday, December 5, 2022 and starts at 5:30 pm.
The theme this year is Christmas on Ice, which ties in perfectly with the fact that we have real ice skating coming to town. Ice Skating in the Pines kicks off just a few days ahead of the parade.
Skating at the Pines in the Angelina Room at the Pitser Garrison Convention Center starts on Saturday, December 3rd, which is same day as Christmas In The Pines and the Lighting of Rudolph.
