'Ready, Set, GLOW' Sheds Festive Light On Tulsa

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma - Despite the cold weather, hundreds came out to celebrate the first twinkle of Christmas lights across downtown at the "Ready, Set, GLOW" event.

Four downtown Tulsa areas participated in a progressive lighting ceremony. We were lucky enough at News On 6 to have the biggest leg of the event right on our doorstep, where it seemed like the majority of people gathered to kick things off.

The freezing winds were gusting all night, but people seemed to be hanging in there. And of course, it wouldn't be the holiday season without some frigid weather.

And the holiday season in Tulsa is officially underway.

“This is our second year to come out here, and we are super excited to come back and we hope to make it a holiday tradition here,” Erin Roberts said.

Families from across the area braved the cold to watch Guthrie Green, John Hope Franklin Reconciliation Park, Winterfest and The Deco District all light up Tulsa.

Tulsa mayor Dewey Bartlett, News On 6 anchor Terry Hood and chief meteorologist Travis Meyer hosted the celebration at Glow on the Green, one of the four events that drew in hundreds of people.

It's something, the mayor says gives him pride.

“Isn't it amazing? It really is,” Bartlett said. “I mean, families walking around, everyone bundled up smiles on their faces, everybody's happy, saying Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy Hanukkah, and all the great greetings we express at this time of year, so it's a terrific time in Tulsa it really is."

A terrific time many kids said they've been looking forward to.

The lights will last through the Christmas season, and even though it's only the second year, most of the people we talked to said they'll be making this event an annual tradition.
