Recently, my toddler has started pointing at lamp posts and shouting “LIGHT, mama, LIGHT!” with immense joy from the backseat of the car.
Needless to say, we are in for a serious MIND BLOWN moment when we take her to see Christmas lights. And – lucky for us – there are SO many options for a great Christmas light viewing in OKC!
Automobile Alley – Head downtown and check out Broadway from NW 4th to 10th street to see more than 180,000 lights drape the buildings in historic Automobile Alley. Lights are on November 20 – January 1 from dusk to dawn.
Markwell Avenue – Located west of Council off NW 23rd Street, this entire block participates in a light show set to music starting the day after Thanksgiving. Turn your radio to 107.1 FM to hear the music. Don’t forget to bring a canned good for their food drive.
