Since 1983, over 130,000 people have thrilled to the sights and sounds of The McAllen Christmas Pageant. Founded by Mark S. Crocker, The McAllen Christmas Pageant has become a heart-warming Rio Grande Valley Christmas tradition and the perfect way to begin the Christmas season.
People from all over have enjoyed this awe-inspiring production that has evolved over the years to feature a 30 foot tall “Living Christmas Tree,” elaborate sets and lights, with a unique and different telling of the story of the birth and life of Jesus Christ each year. In 2007, the “Living Christmas Tree” retired to make way for the premiere of the "Living Christmas Tree Forest.” Over 50 densely lit Christmas trees, computer choreographed and synchronized, create a light show like no other ever performed in the world! This year, the forest continued to "grow" and featured over 84,000 LED lights!
Lighthearted and fun songs, updated traditional carols, scenes of Christmas with falling snow, carolers, kids, elaborate sets and costumes and a live Nativity are all intertwined to focus hearts on the true meaning of Christmas.
