With a winter chill in the air, Cairn’s 7th annual Starry Nite celebration graced Cairn’s community Friday evening.
Considered a beloved tradition by students, faculty, and the local community, Starry Nite provides the opportunity to participate in Christmas festivities, meaningful fellowship, and appreciation of our Savior’s birth.
Fire pits, photo booths, cookie-decorating tables, and kettles filled with hot chocolate and cider lined the walkway. As parents munched on faculty-made homemade cookies, children and students skated to and fro on the first-ever addition of a plastic ice-skating rink, located in the parking lot next to the Masland Library. While many skated, others enjoyed horse-drawn carriage rides around Manor Circle.
Those looking to escape the winter chill found solace inside with gingerbread house making, more photo booths, and an ornament-making stand facilitated by Chi Beta Sigma, the student Social Work organization.
