Candlelight at the Ranch

Rescheduled for December 14 & 15, 6:30 to 9pm

Visitors to the National Ranching Heritage Center will step into a "living Christmas card" when the 40th 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 historic 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. To learn more, click here.
