LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - Out at the Comanche Nation fair on Saturday, visitors enjoyed food, activities and a carnival.

It was out at the Comanche Nation Complex, and the fair went on all weekend after starting on Friday at noon. While there are people who come and go to the fair, some stay for the entire time.

Teresa Lopez and her family camp out for the fair. She says they have been camping out at the fair for 25 years, and there is a special reason why.

"My mother, we are so thankful my mother has been here,” said Lopez. “We do this for her. If she wanted to have a Comanche Nation Powwow on the moon, we would get there. But she loves the Powwow. She's 86 years old, and we have just been doing this for her. This is why we're here, too."

The fair also had a music festival on Saturday night.

The fair is open on Sunday until 10 p.m.
