Harding Campus Lighting Ceremony

Campus Lighting Ceremony

Harding University invites the local community to join in for the beginning of its holiday season activities with the annual campus lighting ceremony. The countdown ceremony begins at 6 p.m. Monday, Nov. 26 on the front lawn near the David B. Burks American Heritage Building.

President Bruce McLarty will lead the crowd in the countdown and illuminate more than 1 million lights that will grace campus through the holiday season. The lighting festivities also include free hot chocolate, carolers, and the opportunity to stroll around and view the lights throughout campus.

Preparations for the event have been underway since October when the University’s physical resources department began hanging lights throughout campus. The lights will remain on until Jan. 7, 2018, and all Arkansans are encouraged to add the campus to their lists of light displays to visit this year.
