Maxwell’s Lights Up Amarillo with nearly one half million lights as it launches its first Magical Christmas Festival


Opening on Black Friday, Nov. 27, Maxwell’s welcomes everyone to its inaugural “Magical Christmas” Festival. “Folks can park their cars, ride to the entrance

on our Grain Trains and experience Christmas lights and seasonal fun throughout our  farm,” said Larry Borger, owner of Maxwell’s Pumpkin Farm and Country Family Fun.

“I’ve always had quite a bit of ‘Clark Griswold’ in me,” said Borger.  “We’ve been working on this concept for five years and 2020 is the year we flip the switch!” added Borger.

Families will be greeted with a 30-foot tall Christmas tree featuring 20,000 lights in the middle of the Green Acres area,” explained Borger. “We’ll also have a 50-foot tall Light Tree with 20,000 pixels dancing with designs and colors. It’s topped off with an 8-foot, 3-dimensional star. Folks should be able to see the tree from I-27,” added Borger. “A walk-in trail of lights and 100’ foot tunnel of lights offers an immersed, holiday experience to get you in the spirit,” said Borger.

SANTA CLAUS will be at Maxwell’s Magical Christmas every night with a Grand Entrance at 6pm. “Folks can take their own photos with Santa at no additional charge and Saint Nick will be joined by a Reindeer and Snowman,’ said Borger. ‘In addition, there will be a nine-foot tall snowflake, nine-foot tall star and seven-foot tall candy cane all lit up and perfect for taking your own family Christmas photos,” added Borger.

“Christmas music will be played throughout Maxwell’s Farm to keep you jolly,” said Borger. In addition, Christmas Movie Clips will be played all evening from your Holiday Movie favorites on a large screen.

Special Activities for kids include “Reindeer Fun.”  For $6.00, kids can create their own bag of “Reindeer Food” with five different ingredients, plus receive a pair of “Reindeer Antlers,” and a “Reindeer Temporary Tattoo.

Many of  Maxwell’s Fall Activities will return with a holiday, seasonal twist including:

• Green Acres Games

• Abominable Snowman Paintball Shooting Gallery

Maxwell’s Christmas Market will feature a variety of Christmas Gifts and foods.

“Enjoy Hot Cocoa, Hot Cider and Coffee too, We’ve got so many neat things to do at Maxwell’s and we’re excited to offer something new and special for everyone in the Panhandle this Christmas Season!” said Borger.
