Countdown Until Lights In The Cottonwood Flats Festival


Our Purpose

Our Purpose is to light up the Cottonwood Flats of Guthrie with Christmas lights. Here is where we will hold an annual free event for the citizens of Guthrie. Along with our event to bring festive cheer, we strive to provide and deliver Christmas gifts to the Guthrie nursing home residents along with some less fortunate families of the community.
