You know the Christmas season is here when Rudolph arrives!

We're talking about Rudolph the Red Nosed Pumping Unit who for 47th year will be ushering in the holidays in East Texas.  There is nothing else like it, as Lufkin Industries provides the Mark 640 oilfield pumping unit and then decorates it along with the Lufkin Ultra Light II dumping trailer acting as Santa's sleigh.

The official lighting ceremonies begin at 5:00PM this Saturday, November 23, in the Lufkin Mall parking lot. The Lufkin High School FIRST Robotics Team will have their robot on-site to light Rudy's lights. Lufkin Industries will be in attendance as well, with giveaways like red antlers, cookies and milk, and performances by the Lufkin Community Band and a choir consisting of Lufkin Industry employees and St. Patrick Catholic Church members.

Rudolph will be in operation every day from 10am to 10pm through the holiday season.

Merry Christmas!!
