Cameron University annual tree lighting kicks off Christmas season

LAWTON, Okla._Cameron University kicked off the Christmas season with their annual tree lighting Tuesday night. After the tree lighting, people got a chance to ride in a horse-drawn carriage around Bentley Gardens.

Athena Griffin, and her grandfather James Lambert, said they have been waiting all year for the Christmas celebration and for a ride in the carriage.

"I want to be here for the carriage ride, and I want to spend time with my family,” said Athena Griffin.

“She was expressing amazement at the how high up on the building the lights were that someone must of had to climb that high to put that up,” said James Lambert.

At the McMahon Centennial Complex, they had food and warm drinks for those who stood outside in the chilly weather for the tree lighting. They also had s'mores, cookie decorations and holiday crafts for the kids.
