Kilgore Holds Annual Derrick Lighting

A traditional sign of the holiday kicked off tonight in Kilgore. With music and festivities, it was the 19th annual lighting of the derricks in the Oil Patch Christmas in Kilgore. Held on the "world's richest acre", hundreds of visitors braved chilly temperatures to join in the fun. The lighting signals the holiday season and many East Texans coming home for Thanksgiving.

The lights will stay on until after January 1.
