Texas Tech’s 54th Annual Carol of Lights to be Held December 1st

An annual holiday tradition will take place at Texas Tech early next month.

The 54th annual Carol of Lights will be held on December 1st in Memorial Circle, the Science Quad, and Engineering Key.

The event begins at 6:30 p.m. with the traditional carillon concert performed by Tom Hughes, and the outdoor ceremony begins at 7 p.m.

The Carol of Lights generally draws crowds of more than 20,000 each year.

The ceremony will include the illumination of the university with more than 25,000 red, orange, and white lights. The group has begun transitioning the bulbs to LED, which is projected to reduce energy consumption of the lights by 87 percent.

Following the outdoor ceremony, the Texas Tech School of Music will host its annual Carols Concert at Hemmle Recital Hall

beginning at 8 p.m.

Vehicle traffic on campus streets near Memorial Circle will be restricted at 5:30 p.m. on December 1st, and will remain closed until the event is concluded.

Parking will be available in the Commuter North parking lot, adjacent to Jones AT&T Stadium.

The lights will be lit each night from dusk until midnight from December 2nd through January 1st, 2013.
