Hi friends! Kalli here.
A calendar counting down the days to Christmas hangs in my living room and every day I mark off one more day (Cue me acting like Buddy the Elf and singing Christmas music constantly)! I’ve been planning hours and hours of fun for my friends and family this holiday season and one can’t miss Christmas activity is visiting lights. There’s something so magical about walking and driving through miles of lights!
Chickasaw Country has many different lights displays. Follow this trail to see all the lights in south-central Oklahoma! Text your friends, tell your family, and make plans to visit Chickasaw Country for all the light displays this holiday season!
The Chickasaw Cultural Center Celebration of Lights is open every day from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. until Dec. 31! While in Sulphur, visit downtown, where you can shop, stop by The Artesian Hotel and view the lights on Muskogee Street!
The Ardmore Festival of Lights is a 1.5-mile drive with over 125 animated light displays! It is open Sunday through Thursday from 6 - 10 p.m. and on Friday and Saturday evenings until 11 p.m. It will close on Dec.30. Before or after driving through the lights, eat at Café Alley in Ardmore for the BEST burgers!
3rd stop: Chickasaw Capitol's Lights in Tishomingo
While in Tishomingo, drive by the Chickasaw Capitol’s Christmas Lights! These are the perfect lights to park your car and walk around! They are open until Dec. 31 from 6-10 p.m. Don’t forget to eat at Ole Red and who knows you might even see Blake Shelton!
(This annual event is not planned for 2018.)
Okay friends. This is the light displays of all light displays! The Chickasha Festival of Light is THE place to go this Christmas season. If you are looking for it, they have it!
