Christmas in the Park in Yukon was much bigger and better than we were expecting and it was free! The trifecta of a good family outing, in our minds, (bigger, better, and free) was in effect the other night so we had a wonderful time. We left being really impressed with the city of Yukon and their holiday display and it is something that we will definitely add to our holiday traditions going forward. Karen and I are always looking for something fun and free to do and what better way to spend a Christmas evening than looking at the wonderful display put on by the city of Yukon, Oklahoma.
Yukon, a suburb of Oklahoma City has been putting on their holiday light spectacular since 1995. Their “Christmas in the Park” celebration has close to 4 million lights on over 400 displays in 2 different city park locations. It is a drive through as well as walk-through Christmas display. They have a train ride nightly as well as horse drawn carriage rides during the weekends.
Last year our daughter was just about a one and half years old and never a big fan of the car seat so we bypassed taking her to see any Christmas lights. Now we have a second daughter and she actually enjoys her car seat (on most days) so we thought we would go looking for Christmas displays. It ended up being a great night. Our two year old McKenna loved the displays and wanted to go through a second time. Our youngest daughter McKayla, who is just a few weeks old, slept through the whole thing so a great drive all around. Next year we hope to get out of the car and walk around a bit. Yukon has a good thing going and we hope it just keeps getting bigger and better.
