Night of Luminaries Lights Up UACCM For The Public

The University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton invites the public to attend the 5th annual Night of Luminaries beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, November 29 on the UACCM campus. During this free community event, approximately 1,700 candle-lit paper bags will illuminate the drive through the center of campus. The small white paper bags, filled with sand anchoring a candle, have been hand-decorated during the past several weeks by kindergarten through sixth grade students enrolled in all elementary schools in Conway County, along with the Center for Exceptional Children.
Individuals attending the Night of Luminaries should enter campus through the Bruce Street entrance on the east end of the college property. The official route will take vehicles behind the Kirk Building before passing the Science Building and the Technology II and Technology III Buildings. The route will continue west past the Fine Arts Building to the UACCM Plaza, where visitors may stop for refreshments including cookies, cider and hot cocoa. Santa Claus will make an appearance in the Plaza courtyard to distribute toys to children.
Luminaries, or Luminarias, are a Hispanic tradition dating from the early Spanish settlement around New Mexico and are seen as a glowing sign to guide the traveler, and UACCM adopted the Night of Luminaries event in 2003 as an annual holiday occasion. All members of the community are invited to attend this family-oriented and fun-filled evening.
