We just got the word that the Lawton Armed Forces Day Parade is a go for this year! Unfortunately it was canceled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but it's returning for 2021. The Lawton Armed Forces Day parade is one of the longest running and biggest Armed Forces Day parades in the country.
If you haven't been yet you'll definitely want to check out the new "Patriot Pavilion" at Elmer Thomas Park in Lawton. The project was completed back in early November with official dedication and grand opening ceremonies. I finally had a chance yesterday to go and check it out and it's amazing!
Fort Sill is planning a prescribed or controlled burn for tomorrow morning (01-05-21) starting around 9:00am CST. So if you're out and about tomorrow and see smoke rising from Fort Sill know that it's under control and is being done deliberately to help prevent the possibility of future wildfires.
77th Army Band "The Pride of Fort Sill" is planning a couple of virtual holiday concerts. Unfortunately due to the COVID-19 pandemic they were unable to perform live at McMahon Auditorium this year for their annual Yuletide spectacular. However, we'll still get to see them perform virtually on their official Facebook page.
