Tickets may be purchased at the Simmons Center at 580-252-2900 or at the box office the evening of each show beginning at 6:30 PM.

The Christmas season in Duncan wouldn't be complete without the lighting of the 905 Rock Island locomotive. To be held in Fuqua Park, join the 905 Rock Island Museum, Edward Jones Investments, and the Stephens County Historical Museum for an evening of hot chocolate, cookies, and music for all. Duncan's Christmas Tree will be lit at 6:30 PM followed by carolers from 6:30 until 7:00 PM at which time the Lighting of the 905 will take place. Santa will see children from 7:00 PM until the last child leaves, so bring the whole family out for a festive time.

Save the date for the annual Duncan Christmas Parade on Saturday, Dec 3, at 3:00 PM. As always, the Christmas Parade is free to enter and donations are accepted at the registration booth at 12th and Main. Registration is not required but only those participants pre-registered are eligible to receive an award. Winners will be awarded 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in the following categories: Best Theme, Judges Choice, Most Unique, and Antique Car. Bring the whole family, young and old, out to the parade for the always interesting floats, the local marching band, and maybe just maybe, a Santa Claus sighting.

You'll also find Cameron University's annual Victorian Tea at the Simmons Center on Dec 4. The event, scheduled from 2:00-4:00 PM, will include a traditional "high tea" with scones, crumpets, and more. The tea will also include a presentation featuring the Victorian era. Tickets available at Cameron University or by calling 580-581-2491.

Don't forget to swing by the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center if you're in town to visit the art exhibit, Horsin' Around: Out of the Vault, a special in-house curated collection of artwork featuring the horse. Artists have always held a fascination with horses and these sketches, paintings and prints have been hidden away in the vault of the Garis Gallery of the American West for many years. This is the 11th year for the Garis Gallery, and many of these were only on display for a short period of time in the first year or two. Come see this exhibit, learn about the artists and the role of the horse in American West history. Afterward, make sure to visit the interactive area and climb in the saddle to try roping a longhorn steer!

Wrap yourself in the holiday spirit and enjoy Duncan, the Heart of the Chisholm Trail. Check for more details or contact The Duncan Convention and Visitors Bureau at 1-580-252-2900.
