About CarlsbadThe fields of cotton, alfalfa and veggies that surround Carlsbad are made possible by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation's system of dams and canals, which irrigates 25,000 acres. Carlsbad Caverns National Park is nearby, and Lake Carlsbad offers fishing, boating and water sports.

Homeowners along the Pecos River decorate their houses, yards and docks with Christmas lights for Christmas on the Pecos , an annual celebration lasting from Thanksgiving weekend through New Year's Eve. Nighttime pontoon boat tours make it impossible to not get into the holiday spirit.
