LAS VEGAS -- Oklahoma native Darci Lynne Farmer made her Vegas debut last weekend.

It is no surprise she was a huge hit in Vegas.

Darci invited Oklahoma News 4's Ali Meyer to join her in Vegas as she prepared for her Friday night show.

Darci Lynne is living the life these days headlining her own show.

She performed for sold out crowds night after night in Vegas.

"It was awesome," Darci said about her opening night performance. "I was like on top of the world. It was fun."

News 4 joined up with the Farmer family on the Vegas strip to talk life, family and fame.

"It is fun being out here in Vegas. It's kind of like getting away from it all. But, I still miss everything back in Oklahoma," Darci said.

Oklahoma is never far from her mind. News 4 Monday night at 10 p.m. for an all-access backstage pass to Darci's show.

America`s tiny talent busts out a few surprises for her fans who lined up inside Planet Hollywood to catch a glimpse of the ventriloquism sensation from Oklahoma City.

Fans traveled from all around America to watch Darci perform live on stage.

25th Annual Elder Fair Was a Hit

"Rolling Out the Red Carpet for Seniors" was the appro-priate theme for Celebrating 25 years of support for Sen-iors and Caregivers. This year’s Elder Fair was a true show stopper. Informational Booths, Body Renew Exer-cises, a Fabulous Meal, Door prizes, and Special Awards to Champions of Seniors were some of the highlights of the day. Katelynn Draper and Jerome Thomas provided outstanding entertainment and Emcee Donnie Jenkins kept the program flowing flawlessly!

The Make and Take was a dual purpose wooden decoration. Some made a re-versible pumpkin and snowman and some chose just one design.

The Elder Fair hospitality table was once again a crowd pleas-er. Almost 100 Seniors and Caregivers were in attendance this year. Thank you for your continued support.
