Get ready for Lincoln University's Holiday Extravaganza.

The annual partnership with the Boys & Girls Club of Jefferson City and Busch's Florist will return from 6-8 p.m. Dec. 5. It is open to the public.

The celebration begins with a tree-lighting ceremony in the Lincoln University Quad (in front of Memorial Hall). From there, participants can enter the hall and enjoy Santa's Workshop, which will be filled with holiday activities, photos with Santa and snacks. Activities include cookie and ornament decorating.

All participants receive a free photo with Santa.

During the ceremony, Lincoln President John Moseley and Boys & Girls Club CEO Wade Middaugh will offer remarks highlighting the organizations' partnership.
