LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - This weekend Cameron University is buzzing with school spirit to end their homecoming week!

A tradition that started five years ago, a golf cart parade, started off the weekend with the "Aggie Fairytale" theme in mind. While this event marched on, another event was canceled. The bonfire and pep rally was called off. Director of Campus Life Leslie Cothren says current weather conditions played into that decision.

"That's an annual tradition that we have, and we really hated to do it," Cothren said. "But with the [county] in a burn ban, we had it suggested that we not. While we didn't really have to follow the rules because we are private property, we play along very nicely. So we decided that was not a really nice thing for us to do while that was happening."
