Mayborn Museum

Event Canceled

Due to the rising coronavirus cases in McLennan County, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our Christmas Lights in the Village event. The health and safety of our staff, our guests, and the community remain our foremost priorities.

If you have already purchased your tickets, our Visitor Services staff will be in touch soon to offer a full refund.

Experience a growing Waco Tradition!

For six nights more than 30,000 lights that will illuminate the Gov. Bill and Vara Daniel Historic Village are sure to create unforgettable memories.

Slow down your holiday season with a relaxing and socially-distanced stroll through the village that will include a petting zoo, visits with Santa and Mrs. Claus, food for purchase from local vendors, and more!

See below for date specific entertainment and food options.
