When you visit the Chickasha Festival of Light, you'll find it is more than just a drive-through experience. Get out of the car and experience a thrilling view from a horse-drawn carriage on a magical ride through this park of lights. The kids will enjoy having their photo made with Santa Claus, and everyone will want to visit the gift shop and snack stand for hot cocoa, delicious cinnamon rolls, candied nuts and more. Stroll through more than four miles of lighted walkways and be sure to snap a photo under the beautifully lit pedestrian bridge over the park's lake.  Enjoy a live nativity production on select evenings in December complete with live camels, donkeys, actors and more. There will also be camel rides and a nativity animal petting area.

Chickasha truly offers holiday spirit and they invite you to join over 250,000 visitors who catch the spirit at the Festival of Light each year.

Lisa, for that information your best bet is to give the event coordinators a call at 405-224-9627, as the camel rides are only available on various dates. Thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Lisa on 12/22/15

We won't get to come till after Christmas. Wondering during the week day if you still have the camel rides? And all of the other things to do for kids?


From Carlos on 12/22/15

My family and I go every year, love the place, it's better if you park and walk it instead of just driving thru.


From jessica on 12/21/15

Drove an hour and was very disappointed! Too many white lights strung everywhere with no rhyme or reason. Many of the displays have outdated, dull lights. The only part I enjoyed was the bridge lights. If you are from OKC area, save your gas and go to Yukon!


From TravelOK.com Staff on 12/21/15

Julie, we haven't heard if dogs are allowed or not! Please give the event coordinators a call at 405-224-9627, and they'll be able to answer that for you. Thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Denise on 12/20/15

We traveled 2.5 hours to see this light display.... yes there lots of lights... but there was no rhyme or reason to the displays. There didn't seem to be any order between the pedestrians and the drivers. The drive through was kind of boring for us because there was no music to tune to on the radio and was very short and we had to watch out more for the pedestrians than enjoying the short drive through. Over all we were disappointed considering the long drive we took to get there the 1.5 hours we had to wait to even get into the park. Not really impressed for this to be in the top 10.


From Julie on 12/19/15

Are you able to walk through with your dogs?


From TravelOK.com Staff on 12/17/15

Mark, yes they will be open each evening through December 31. Thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Mark Barnes on 12/17/15

Will you be open Christmas Day?


From TravelOK.com Staff on 12/14/15

Deborah, thank you for the head's up! We've just corrected that information and hope you had a great time at the Chickasha Festival of Light.


From Deborah kaufman on 12/12/15

You're address is listed as 2400 N 9th and should be 2400 S 9th street. We drove from stillwater ok and ended up at the wrong place


From Becca on 12/07/15

Me and my family go the the Festival of Light every year and we are always in awe.


From owner on 12/07/15

Kasie, the light show will be going on during those dates. We are open Mon-Thu from 6-10 pm, Fri-Sat from 6-11 pm and Sundats from 6-10 pm. We look forward to seeing you at the lights!!


From Amanda smith on 12/05/15

I was wondering what the pricestatus was to get in to see the lights.


From kasie on 12/05/15

I was wondering if the show of lights would be going on between December 28 - January 1


From owner on 12/05/15

Cheryl, Here are the dates for the Live Nativity: December 3-5, December 10-15, and December 17-20.


From cheryl moore on 12/04/15

I was just wondering which nights will there be the live nativity with animals? Thanks!


From Laura on 12/01/15

I'm 33 and I've been there almost every year since I was born and can't say enough about how amazing this place is. Every year it gets better and better. I've been to other light displays all over the state including Midwest City and Yukon and no one else compares. COME VISIT CHICKISHA FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS!!!! You will not be disappointed!


From Leslie on 11/11/15

The lights display is absolutely amazing! Every time we have gone it has been a great experience. We will be taking my daughter this year for the first time and I can't wait to see her reaction. As for those that say they would not recommend it, that confuses me. This has always been an amazing family event and it is justly rated in the top 10. You cannot base one case of someone acting a fool on your entire experience. Sorry they had to deal with that, but normally those incidents just don't happen there. At least they never have each time I have gone.


From Ann on 09/11/15

Loved the lights , beautiful & displays plan on going again


From Tracy on 12/09/14

not highly recommended - especially if you're traveling from very far away. I find it hard to believe it's in the top 10 anywhere. Disappointed.


From Shelly Moore on 12/22/13

Would not recommend this place to people that have to drive 20 minutes or more in order to get there. Glad it was free because the amount of money we spent on hot chocolate and old cinnamon rolls was more than I would have paid to see the lights. While there we encountered a lady fighting with some gentleman. She was cussing and screaming as my family was trying to enjoy the lights and there was no one around to help with the situation. So, needless to say I would not recommend this place at all.


From Shelia Bailey on 11/14/13

Truly a amazing place. I grow up in that park my Dad was the Super. he always got things ready for this time of year beautiful place. Remember Ron Terry when traveling their the road is named after him, that goes thru the park.
