Head to Okemah for a community-wide holiday celebration in the downtown area. First, gather around as the town Christmas tree lights turn on and 2018 Once Upon a Christmas parade floats pass through town, signaling the official start of the season. Next, Santa will arrive, awaiting photo opportunities with kids who hope to share their gift wish lists while chatting inside his sleigh. Seventy singers will lighten the mood with festive live entertainment, and local businesses will set up vendor and activity booths for all to enjoy. Children can partake in popcorn garland crafts or sip on hot chocolate, while adults can take a look at art on display to consider bringing home to spruce up bare walls. From the Christmas ornament contest to the prize drawings, this Okemah Christmas Extravaganza will offer fun winter activities for all who attend.
