Texas Tech University will hold an annual event next week.

Tech will host the 55th annual Carol of Lights celebration “55 Years of Magical Memories,” on December 3rd, 2013.

The outdoor ceremony, held in the Science Quad and Memorial Circle, begins with the carillon concert at 6:30 p.m. and the ceremony at 7 p.m.

Carol of Lights was traditionally held on a Friday, but due to Thanksgiving being later in the month of November and final exams starting soon afterward, Carol of Lights has been moved to Tuesday.

The ceremony generally draws around 20,000 attendees. More than 25,000 red, white, and orange lights illuminate the campus at the end of the ceremony, and will stay on through the Christmas season.

After the outdoor ceremony, the Texas Tech School of Music will hold its annual Carols Concert in Hemmle Recital Hall beginning at 8 p.m.
