Annual "Night of Luminaries" Brings Santa to UACCM

The University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton invites the public to attend the annual “Night of Luminaries” from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 4, 2008, following the Morrilton Christmas Parade. The free community event features nearly 2000 candle-lit paper bags which illuminate the drive through campus and lead patrons to Santa himself, who will be ready to greet children following his duties in the parade.
The small white paper bags spread across campus have been hand-decorated during the past several weeks by kindergarten through sixth grade students enrolled in Conway County elementary schools including Morrilton Primary – Westside, Morrilton Primary - Reynolds, Morrilton Elementary, Morrilton Intermediate, Wonderview, Nemo Vista, and Sacred Heart schools, and the Center for Exceptional Children.
Individuals attending the Night of Luminaries should enter the campus through the Bruce Street entrance on the east end of the college property. The route will take vehicles behind the Kirk Building before passing the Science Building and the route will continue west past the Fine Arts Building to the UACCM Plaza where visitors may stop for refreshments of cider, cocoa, and cookies. Santa Claus will be attending the event again this year and each child will receive a gift.
