Kingfisher in Lights Press Release
Kingfisher in Lights
November 23 – December 30
Sunday through Thursday, 6 to 10 p.m. – Friday and Saturday, 6 – 11 p.m.
Millions of lights are setting historic Kingfisher Park ablaze in Kingfisher. Every evening from the Wednesday before Thanksgiving through December 30th, drivers can make their way to see Kingfisher in Lights.
Located in Kingfisher Park, just east of downtown Kingfisher at the crossroads of State Highway 81 and 33, the Christmas Park lighting draws the attention of those who come to see the famous swinging bridge, circa 1903, spanning Uncle John’s creek. If you haven’t seen the swinging bridge in awhile, you’ll want to come see the updated lights this year as they will be brighter than ever! Children and adults alike delight in walking across the old-fashioned bridge, and looking over the rails to see thousands of lights reflecting in the water.
Those who prefer the comfort of their car can drive the winding road that weaves in and out of over 80 lighted displays, many of which are animated. A baseball pitcher winds up and throws, only to have the batter knock it out of the ballpark every time. A fiery flame jumps out of the dark, only to be extinguished by an ever-ready fireman, and a soccer player kicks the winning goal while a fisherman almost catches the one that got away.
But what’s a drive by a creek at night without passersby looking for a monster of sorts – and at Kingfisher In Lights, all are delighted as the big, green, friendly dragon snakes his way down the river, blowing puffs of bright red smoke as he goes.
Free admission draws holiday sightseers, who particularly enjoy the train ride through the park. Visitors enjoy hot chocolate while families ride the decorated train through the park to get an up-close look at all the displays. And on some nights, Santa stops by to visit and pass out candy to nice visitors.
Who doesn’t like to ride in a horse drawn carriage? If you can join us on a Friday or Saturday, romantic horse drawn carriage rides are available. If you prefer a moonlight stroll, the lighted walking path through the park is for you.
Only 40 minutes north of Oklahoma City and south of Enid, Kingfisher in Lights is sure to thrill!
