Lights, Carolers, Action!

Celebrating the season’s lights in an illuminating way



 



As our days turn to night far more quickly this month, watching the metro light up in true festive fashion seems like the perfect way to get into the holiday spirit.
 

Downtown’s Automobile Alley will be ablaze with more than 180,000 LED lights decorating the buildings along N Broadway. Christmas lights also will illuminate Bricktown Canal through Jan. 1 – enjoy the display from a free water taxi ride on selected evenings through December. On a smaller scale, OKC’s very own (former) tinsel town Film Row will be lit up through the festive season, and step inside OKC’s historic Skirvin Hilton for a lobby lit with seasonal cheer and a cocktail reception on Dec. 12.

In Midwest City, Joe B. Barnes Regional Park will become a twinkling wonderland with 100 different displays centered around a magnificent 118-foot Christmas tree illuminated with 9,000 bulbs – not that anyone is counting.

For an even more illuminating experience, 3.5 million lights to be precise, the Chickasha Festival of Lights will be positively glowing with more than 100 bright scenes and animated displays in and around Shannon Springs Park. Relish the four miles of dazzling displays from the comfort of a horse-drawn carriage – it’s quite a journey.

In Edmond, light shows can be found in downtown and the cheerfully decorated Spring Creek area, as well as the UCO and OC campuses. The Edmond Ugly Holiday Lights Run offers a 5k or one-mile run through the illumination on Dec. 2, and you can even don Christmas sweaters for a chance to win a prize.

The Christmas lights are officially turned on in Norman on Dec. 1 with the traditional Tree Lighting Ceremony in Andrews Park, followed by a special double-sized Art Walk. And spreading Christmas cheer from their beautifully lit Norman home, The Downs Family Christmas Light Ministry will be on display to aid the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.

It’s an illuminating season – in many ways – so wrap up, get out there and enjoy the show.
