Yukon's Christmas In The Park Brings Holiday Cheer

Monday, December 6th 2021, 8:57 am


It isn’t Christmas in Yukon until 5 million twinkling lights illuminate the night sky.

The light display at the city’s Christmas in the Park is the largest in Oklahoma.

For more than a quarter century, spectators have driven to Chisholm Trail Park to celebrate the holiday season.

Whether it’s a florescent Nativity Scene, a 10-foot tall Frosty or a light-wrapped train car, more than 500 displays are set up by city employees and volunteers. It’s a process that begins in August.

Admission is free, but donations are welcomed. Each dollar helps put on the display the following year.

Park-goers who prefer to see the display up close can also walk through the park. Walkers can visit selfie stations, ride the Santa Express Train, skate in the ice rink and take pictures with Santa.

The park will open each night from 6-11 p.m. until New Years day.
