The Junior League of Lubbock Presents:





November 19-23, 2014

Lubbock Memorial Civic Center

Thank You Lubbock and West Texas...

For 35 years, a group of women have spent countless hours planning, organizing, and creating the "magic" that has become synonymous with the start of the Christmas season in Lubbock - Holiday Happening!

Each year these women have poured their hearts into creating a one-of-a-kind experience filled with shopping and special events to get the Lubbock community into the Christmas spirit.

While themes, the décor trends, and the aprons have changed over the years, one thing has remained the same - our mission to raise funds that go back into our community through our projects.

You have made raising those funds possible!  We would like to thank you for 35 years of support and partnership in making Lubbock a better place.  Please join us this year as we Unwrap the Magic!

The Holiday Happening 2014 Committee
