Winter in OKC | Metro Ford of OKC

 
One of the best parts about the holidays is getting to spend time with family and friends, but sometimes you can feel like there is little to do. If you think that during November and December in Oklahoma City, you are missing out. This time offers Oklahomans some of the most fun and affordable activities all year, and they're all right here in OKC. Our top holiday events are: 

The Devon Ice Rink at Myriad Botanical Gardens
This has become an Oklahoma City classic. Get your winter fun on by skating the day away in the park. Open from November 11 to January 29, this is a family trip that can occur time and again, even after the holidays. You can rent skate there or save money by bringing your own. The rink also has Rock and Skate nights from 7-9 p.m.


Automobile Alley Lights on Broadway
There may be no better way to turn on thee holiday spirit that by looking at Christmas lights. With that in mind, Automobile Alley decided to cover the faces of each of its historical buildings with thousands of lights. It is quite the sight to see, and with the shopping, dining and night life that the Alley offers, you'll have plenty to do once you've gotten int he holiday spirit. 


Canal lights and free water taxi rides
The lights don't stop at Automobile Alley. Bricktown is not one to be outdone, so the beautiful canal gets lit up with glittering decor from November 25 through January 1, too. While your shopping, dining or out for a night of fun, don't miss it. 

To go along with the canal decorations, you can also catch a water taxi ride free of charge, if you plan your time right. 

The Mistletoe Market
Put on by the Junior League of Oklahoma City at the Cox Convention Center, this event features a collection of vendors from Oklahoma and across the country, and it is the perfect place to get some unique and endearing holiday gifts. Not only that, but the profits from the market benefit health and wellness projects across the OKC community.
