Chickasaw National Recreation Area Superintendent Bruce Noble would like to invite the public to the Campfire Stories event at the Bromide area in the park’s Platt Historic District on Saturday, June 19th.
Join Chickasaw National Recreation Area and the Sulphur Chamber of Commerce for a wonderful evening of music, hayrides, and storytelling. Young and old alike will be spellbound by tales of days gone by told around a campfire. Hayrides and music will begin at 7:00 p.m. Storytelling will start at 8:30p.m. in front of the Bromide Pavilion. Storytellers include community members, Territory Tellers, the Chickasaw Nation, and park staff.
Bring your lawn chairs or blankets and come sit a spell. There is no cost for any portion of the evening’s activities.
