The Mission

The MSU-Burns Fantasy of Lights is one of the largest holiday displays of its kind. Its purpose is to provide a festive holiday atmosphere on campus, to serve as an outreach to the community, and to be a focal point for holiday activities in North Texas. The displays are owned and operated by Midwestern State University for the benefit and enjoyment of the Wichita Falls community and surrounding area. The Fantasy of Lights is filled with individual displays that showcase characters from well-known children's stories, fairy tales, and holiday themes. New scenes are added periodically as finances and circumstances permit. Midwestern State University is fully committed to operating the display in a safe and fiscally responsible manner, one which not only ensures that it will continue to be a source of pride and enjoyment for future generations but also will preserve the vision and selfless sense of community spirit embodied by its founders. Fantasy of Lights is a nonprofit enterprise that relies exclusively on the generous donations and volunteerism of the MSU and Wichita Falls communities. These charitable acts confirm that this unique display belongs to YOU! Therefore, I ask that as you read this website information to please consider donating any amount in order to keep this holiday tradition alive and growing in the years to come!

Happy Holidays,
Dirk Welch
Coordinator, MSU-Burns Fantasy of Lights
