One night last week we drove out to Yukon to see their beautiful Christmas In The Park light display, we wanted to go before the “Polar Vortex” arrived. Christmas In The Park has been going on for several years, it’s made up of over 400 lighted displays and over 4 million lights. Many of the displays are sponsored by businesses, individuals and families and all have a Christmas theme to them. Yukon is about a 15 to 20-minute drive west of Oklahoma City and is well worth a visit, especially if you have kids. We drove through the entire display but there are several places along the way that you can park your car, get out and walk among the displays and enjoy them up close. I wanted to share some of the sights from Christmas In The Park with you as we head into the week before Christmas. Have a great day and Enjoy!!!
An example of a sponsored light display.
Ice skating penguins.
I loved this display on the other side of a large pond in the park. It has a tropical theme with grass-skirted dancers, decorated palm trees, boats and an ice cream stand.
Of course, you need a stagecoach and Clydesdale horses in an Oklahoma light display. This one is sponsored by Express Personnel Services.
This gentleman was shooting his Christmas cannon over the road we were driving on, the cannon ball landed on the other side of the road in an explosion of lights and colors.
I love this display at the end of the tour, it shows a skiing area, you can see the lift heading up the mountain on the right. Those are kids in the center gathered around a roaring fire.
When we got up close it reminds me of the Light Bright toys we had as kids. Fun and beautiful!!!
I hope you’ll get out and enjoy the sights, sounds and smells in your area for the holidays. Remember someone works really hard to make the fun and beautiful things happen and we all need to support and enjoy them.
