Christmas lights to see around OKC

Posted by: Greater Oklahoma City Chamber on Tuesday, December 18, 2018 at 12:00:00 am
Myriad Gardens Christmas Lights

This article originally ran on VeloCity.com.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year folks. The weather is cold, hot chocolate is flowing, and I think I saw Rudolph doing some practice runs a few days ago. This time of year two things become much bigger than any other time of the year; Mariah Carey and Christmas lights. In fact, “All I Want for Christmas Is You” jumped back in the top 100 just a few days ago. You know where to find the music though, so, here are the best light displays in the OKC area.

  • The Midwest City light show at Joe B. Barnes Regional Park is great! There are 100 dazzling displays of lights including an 11-story Christmas tree that has nearly 9,000 twinkling bulbs. The trail through the park is about 1.5 miles. You can take a horse-drawn carriage ride or simply stretch your legs and walk the park. It will warm your heart during such a cold time of the year.
  • The Myriad Gardens have an entire month full of festivities lined up for the holiday season. The Devon Ice Rink will be open, there are Saturdays with Santa, you can learn how to curl, and, of course, there are Christmas lights. The special display at the Crystal Bridge is designed by professionals and can be viewed for just a small fee.
  • The Chickasha light display just might be the best of all. I have gone to this show multiple times, and I am never ever disappointed. The park is completely covered in lights. Nearly every tree is covered. There is an amazing bridge and a ton of displays that will put you in the holiday spirit.
  • Automobile Alley just between N.W. 4th and N.W. 10th off of Broadway has a spectacular show. Known as “Lights on Broadway,” the district has several buildings draped in lights that would make anyone stop and gaze for a few extra moments. The lights are up from the day after Thanksgiving to New Years, and the best part is that you experience them while doing some local Christmas shopping and dining along Automobile Alley and 9th
  • Yukon might have the biggest display in terms of size. They have three connecting parks that consist of Yukon’s Chisolm Trail, Freedom Trail and city parks. These combine to make up 100 acres where you will find a 50 foot Christmas tree.  This display has so much to offer.
  • Edmond has a brand-new light display called Luminance. Held at Mitch Park, the lights are lit every night in December from 5 to 10 p.m.
  • The Bricktown Canal might be the most unique of all of these options. The businesses and buildings are lined with vibrant colorful lights. You can take a free water taxi ride to slowly travel down the canal as you take in the beauty of the scenery around you. The free taxi rides are available for all ages courtesy of the Downtown Business Improvement District. They are dependent on weather so make sure and watch the forecast!

One of the can’t miss sights and experiences of OKC is the beautiful Christmas tree in Bricktown. These are just the seven that we here at the chamber recommend, but there are other places where you can see great lists.

There is no shortage of lights this Christmas, or Mariah Carey this year, which means you have no excuse not to be in the holiday spirit!
