CU hosts Centennial Celebration Kick-Off featuring The Oak Ridge Boys

Lawton_Press Release_Cameron University launches its Centennial Celebration with a kick-off event featuring award-winning country vocal group The Oak Ridge Boys on Friday, August 22 at Cameron Stadium. The action gets underway just north of the stadium at 5 p.m. with a family fun carnival featuring inflatable games for all ages, as well as rising Red Dirt music star Johnny Cooper, who brings his signature sound to the festivities from 5 to 6:30 p.m. The first 3,000 guests to arrive will receive food and birthday cake.

The action moves into Cameron Stadium when the legendary Silver Wings Command Exhibition Parachute Demonstration Team, comprised of members of the U.S. Army from Fort Benning, Georgia, drop from the sky in a dazzling array of airborne maneuvers. CU's Centennial Celebration honors Southwest Oklahoma's Native American heritage with a performance by members of the Comanche Nation who will perform traditional songs and dances from the Southern Plains. Stadium gates open at 6:30 p.m., and the Kick-Off will officially begin at 7:30 p.m.

The Oak Ridge Boys bring one of the most distinctive and recognizable sounds in the music industry to the CU stage. Their four-part harmonies and upbeat songs have spawned dozens of country and pop hits including "Elvira," "American Made", "Bobbie Sue," "Gonna Take A Lot Of River," and "Thank God For Kids." 

The celebration will be capped by a dazzling fireworks display.

Admission to Cameron University's Centennial Celebration Kick-Off is free; however, a ticket is required for admission into the stadium. Tickets are available at numerous campus locations, including the Cashier's Desk in the Administration Building, the Student Activities Building, the Bookstore at the Student Union, and One Stop, located in North Shepler. Cameron University - Duncan also has tickets available. In Lawton, tickets can be picked up off-campus at Easton's Ace Hardware and Crutcher's Western Wear.

    A North Korean mid-range ballistic missile test-fire apparently failed Saturday, South Korea and the United States said, the third such flop just this month but a clear message of defiance as a U.S. supercarrier conducts tests in nearby waters.
