Candlelight at the Ranch

December 13 & 14, 6:30pm to 9pm

Visitors to the National Ranching Heritage Center will step into a "living Christmas card" Dec. 13-14 when the 41st Annual Candlelight at the Ranch recreates a frontier holiday similar to those on the open prairie from 1780 to 1950. The event will include more than 4,000 luminaries lining the paths of the historical park as volunteer Ranch Hosts dress in period clothing to recreate holiday scenes from another era. The event is free to the public with a minimum suggested $5 donation per family. For more information about the event, click here.

There is an indoor and outdoor display. History and Beauty in sculptures. Many homes and antiques to display. The staff is extremely thoughtful and helpful. This is a must see, it is free, but they accept donations to help with the upkeep.
