TAHLEQUAH – Northeastern State University will celebrate its 27th “Lights On” at Seminary Hall ceremony at 5:30 p.m., Dec. 3 on the Tahlequah campus.

The event will bring the NSU and Tahlequah communities together to kick start the season while officially lighting the historic Seminary Hall for the holidays.

The event will include performances by various campus and community talent. Hot chocolate will be served.

Tahlequah Mayor Sue Catron and NSU first lady Penny Turner will host the event. Special guests will include Miss Northeastern 2019 Malory Lynch, Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus and the elves.

Following the performances and the lighting, children will be able to visit Santa Claus inside Seminary Hall and receive a commemorative ornament and a special stocking stuffer from Saint Nick himself. Parents are encouraged to bring a camera to photograph their child with Santa. There will also be a winter wonderland photo booth available for families and friends.

“Lights On” is a celebration open to students and the community, at no cost.

Dr. Robyn Pursley, one of the event’s organizers, said, “’Lights On’ is a great opportunity to bring the entire community together. We have had a great turn out every year, and we hope to continue that tradition this year as well.”

Following “Lights On,” families are encouraged to head over to the NSU Center for the Performing Arts, as the Department of Music hosts its “Good Yule” concert filled with holiday spirit beginning at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $8 general admission, $5 for students and seniors.
