A 118 foot Christmas Tree with 9,000 lights, a huge tunnel of lights, an animated waterfall display and an animated Cady Cane Company are just a few of the features one finds along the mile long walk or drive through this Midwest City- based attraction at Joe B. Barnes Regional Park.

The adventure begins with illumined snowflakes leading guest’s to the show as they make their way on South East 15 Street.

Yukon’s month-long “Christmas in the Park” holiday lights celebration encompasses three of the city’s attractions: Yukon City Park, Freedom Trail Park and Chisholm Trail Park. 4 million holiday lights in a variety of colors and patterns, adorns city streets and the lake.

Just to the Southwest of the Oklahoma City Metro is Chickasha’s massive “Festival of Light.”

What started as a small community-wide display in Shannon Springs Park has turned into a major statewide attraction that brings people from across the country. Over 300,000 people are said to attend the annual display, which boasts some 4 miles of lighted walkways, choreographed displays and a 25-foot angel centerpiece.  

Muskogee’s Garden of Lights, The Bricktown Canal Lights, and Christmas Kingdom at the Castle are other popular Oklahoma Holiday displays.

Each one of these holiday displays are completely free and open to the public.
