Holiday lights illuminate the night no matter where you go and this weeks OneSix8 gives just a few of the many seasonal light displays throughout the state.

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.

Holiday music accompanies us as we walk city streets throughout the month of December, in every shop and restaurant. The sounds of the season may well be your favorite soundtrack at home, too.

The UCO Jazz lab plays tribute to the season in their “Holidays at Home” concert this December 12 through the 14.
