Four new rides and games will highlight the 2018 edition of East Central Community College’s Warrior Wonderland scheduled Friday, Dec. 7, on the campus in Decatur. The special celebration of Christmas will begin immediately following the Decatur Christmas Parade, about 6:30 p.m., and conclude by 8:30 p.m.

Following the parade, activities will kick off with a fireworks display and visitors will have a variety of activities from which to choose.

A $5 armband will provide unlimited access to a train ride, laser tag, and four new rides and games including Human Foosball, Hippo Chow Down, Meltdown and Wrecking Ball.

The Mississippi National Guard will once again partner with the college and provide a gaming trailer, football toss, punch machine and a new dodge archery game.

“We hope everyone will come out and enjoy the activities and fun our campus community has planned for this special holiday evening at East Central,” said East Central Community College president Dr. Billy Stewart. “It’s always a joy to partner with our local communities, especially during the Christmas season.”

East Central Community College music groups, including the Collegians, Vocé, and the Christmas Band, will be performing throughout the night on the music stage and the college’s art department will host a “Christmas Karaoke” booth for those who wish to participate.

There will be a Selfies with Santa station, a Mississippi National Guard Avenger military vehicle that guests can maneuver, and various specialty, food, and drink booths sponsored by ECCC student organizations.
