“Cameron University invites all residents of southwest Oklahoma out to this annual holiday tradition,” says Josh Lehman, Senior Director of Public Affairs. “We are fortunate to have outstanding community support and this festive celebration is a way for us express our appreciation for that support. There are a variety of activities for families, and we welcome everyone to come out and have a great time.”

The come-and-go event will include horse-drawn carriage rides, cookie-decorating stations for kids of all ages, musical performances and the lighting of a fully decorated tree. Hot cocoa, coffee, cupcakes, popcorn balls, cookies and ‘smores will be served.
