An annual Texas Tech Christmas tradition is approaching.

The 53rd Annual Carol of Lights has been moved from its usual Friday evening spot to Saturday.

Provost Bob Smith discussed benefits of the change, saying “Moving the Carol of Lights from Friday to Saturday evenings will help to eliminate most conflicts with the academic calendar as it is revised for 2012 and beyond.”

Smith also said that holding the event on Saturday will “allow for greater participation by the Lubbock community and Texas Tech alumni who want to travel to Lubbock to enjoy the tradition.”

Around 20,000 people attend the event, where more than 25,000 Christmas lights illuminate the campus at the end of the event.

This year, the ceremony will be held on Saturday, December 3rd. The carillon concert will begin at 6:30 p.m., with the full ceremony beginning at 7 p.m. Following the event, the annual Carols Concert presented by the School of Music will take place in Hemmle Recital Hall.

Parking will be available in the North Commuter parking lot near Jones AT&T Stadium. All campus streets near Memorial Circle will close the afternoon prior to the ceremony, and will reopen after the Carol of Lights.
