When Will They Light Rudolph The Red Nose Pumping Unit In Lufkin, Texas?
If you are ready to see Rudolph lit for the 56th consecutive year, you are not alone. Everyone is ready to see that Mark 640 Lufkin Industries pumping unit light up the night.
What started in 1966 as just a few Christmas lights on a pumping unit at Lufkin Industries has now grown into a full festival. Now the pumping unit is downtown and ready for the big day.
This fully functional pumping unit is just like the ones out in oil fields all over the world that were made right here in Lufkin. The only difference is the red and white paint reserved for the holiday season.
Rudolph The Red Nose Pumping Unit Lighting Ceremony
What used to be an event just to celebrate the lighting of Rudolph with Santa and some cookies has grown so much over the years. On Saturday, December 3, 2022 at 2 pm Visit Lufkin's 4th annual 'Christmas In The Pines' starts a series of events that lead up to the lighting.
Vendors and food trucks will line the downtown streets for shopping starting at 2 pm. They are coming from all over the state to help you get your Christmas shopping done and fill your belly.
From 2 pm - 4 pm there will be live performances on the stage by local groups like Susan's Studio of Dance. Santa will start posing for pictures with you from 2:30 pm until 5 pm inside the Pines Theater.
