Six Oklahoma Christmas Attractions You Must Experience
By Craig Day, The News On 6
UNDATED -- Christmas is quickly approaching, but there's still time for you to get out and enjoy some of the best holiday attractions around.
The News On 6 has compiled a list of six things you'll want to see before it's too late.
The Christmas Train at Dry Gulch is sold out for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but there are some tickets left for during Christmas week -- Monday through Thursday, with your best bet to get tickets on Wednesday and Thursday.
The attraction in Mayes County takes you back in time to an old west town, all decked out for the holidays.
"Especially with the Christmas Train, we want people to be able to come out and have a bonding experience," said Ethan Vanse, Assistant Pastor.
You can also bond at Winterfest in downtown Tulsa, right outside the BOK Center. It runs through January 4th on 3rd Street between Denver and Frisco.
"It's the fact that it's outside, and it's Christmas time and it's fun! It's fun. That's the most important part," said Jodie Jackson, a Tulsa mom.
The rink is twice as large this year. It costs $5 if you bring your own skates, $8 if you don't, but some discounts are available.
It's free to go see the 1.8 million lights at Rhema. They will light up the winter nights from 5:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. through New Year's Day.
The display off 71st Street draws 200,000 visitors each year.
Lots of people go see the inflatables at the Castle of Muskogee's Christmas Kingdom. There are more than 1,000 of them. It runs from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday through Sunday nights.
If you want to see Woolaroc's Wonderland of lights, you need to hurry. This is the last weekend.
You can check out 650,000 lights.
Oklahoma's Bricktown Ballpark offers snow tubing. You can tube down snow from the stands to the field. It runs on various dates through January 3rd.
