The 25nd annual event will feature a tree-lighting ceremony, during which a giant Christmas tree will be lit with the flip of a switch.  During the Lights for Life celebration, there will also be Christmas carols sung by choirs from Harlingen High School and Harlingen High School South, Christmas cookies, hot chocolate, and an early visit from Santa Claus.

Continuing his tradition of making a grand entrance, Santa will arrive in style in his 1926 Chevy Bus, accompanied by a little weather from the North Pole in the form of the first “snowfall” in the Rio Grande Valley in years. Two years ago, Santa delighted the children by arriving in a fire engine, and three years ago Santa arrived by a fishing boat. The year before that he made a grand entrance by motorcycle sidecar — escorted by the Patriot Guard Riders.

Santa will accept any donations of unwrapped gifts on behalf of the not-for-profit Valley Baptist Medical Center Auxiliary. Donated gifts will be delivered to hospitalized children in the Matt and Patty Gorges Children’s Center at Valley Baptist.
