LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The calendar shows it's November, Fall is in the air, and there's a lot of construction going on in the parking lot of Lufkin Mall. It must be time for Rudolph.
This afternoon employees with Lufkin Industries gave KTRE a test run of the most famous pumping unit in East Texas. His name is "Rudolph, The Red Nosed Pumping Unit." The actual lighting ceremony for Rudolph is November 22 at 5 o'clock. In the meantime, the crews are busy hooking up the more than one thousand lights on the display, which includes a 38-foot dump trailer with Santa and toys.
This is the 42 year of Rudolph the Red Nosed Pumping Unit being constructed and lighted for the community by Lufkin Industries.
