Following your traditional Thanksgiving meal, have the little ones clear the table and wash the dishes, dress the family in their warmest coats and venture out to one of Oklahoma’s many holiday lights displays. Oklahoma City’s Downtown in December presented by Devon begins the Christmas season Nov. 13 with the opening of the Devon Ice Rink, the Bricktown Canal Lights and a series of other holiday cheer events. Nov. 22, recognized as one of the top 10 holiday light shows in the nation, the Chickasha Festival of Lights features 3.5 million twinkling lights throughout Shannon Springs Park. Nov. 25, northwest Oklahoma City lights up in the Chesapeake Energy Holiday Lights Display. Eight city blocks become charmed with colorful lights, surrounding Chesapeake Energy’s main Oklahoma City campus. In Broken Arrow, the Rhema Bible Church dazzles with the two million lights decorating the campus beginning Nov. 26. While Rhema dazzles, Muskogee’s Honor Heights Park shimmers with 120 acres of nature, adorned with holiday lights. For more than 40 years, Utica Square’s Lights On has introduced the holiday spirit to Tulsans with hot chocolate, Christmas carols and 700 thousand lights covering 175 trees. Nov. 27, downtown Tulsa transforms into a winter wonderland during Winterfest.
