Taking time to celebrate special occasions as a community is great, but you know what’s better than a holiday? A holimonth. That’s what’s in store for Oklahoma City thanks to the annual icy excitement that is Downtown in December – in fact, by the time you read this, the fun will have already begun.
With a range that should appeal to just about anybody of any age and preferred entertainment, the 17th annual Downtown in December is more fun than will fit in this space … but here are a few of the things you can do:
Strap on a pair of skates and take a spin (or an axel) around the Devon Ice Rink at the Myriad Gardens; check in with the big guy at Devon’s Saturdays With Santa; catch the OKC Philharmonic’s Christmas Show and A Canterbury Christmas; drift along the Bricktown Canal on a free Holiday Water Taxi ride; browse Pambe Ghana’s Global Market, the Holly Jolly Shops at the Brick and the rotating wares of the Holiday Pop-Up Shops in Midtown; enjoy lights in Film Row and Automobile Alley and treats in the Skirvin, the Sheraton and the OKC Museum of Art … and don’t forget the new transportation for enjoying it all: the OKC Streetcar debuts Dec. 14.
“Downtown in December has grown into a major local tradition, and this year promises some brand-new additions as well as longtime favorites,” says Mayor David Holt. “Notably, starting in mid-December, citizens will have the opportunity to visit locations throughout downtown on the streetcar.”
