Oklahoma has so many light displays from which to choose, but I'll name a few here for you.

It's been called one of the top 10 light displays in the nation. You can travel to Chickasha for the city's annual Festival of Light, where one can see an amazing 3.5 million shimmering lights on display.

Midwest City has the Holiday Lights Spectacular at Joe B. Barnes Park.

Kingfisher in Lights has been thrilling families for many years. So has Christmas in the Park in Yukon, where one can find horse-drawn carriage rides and a light display that actually weaves through three interconnecting parks.

Finally, if you are looking for something completely different, how about a winter Solstice Walk. The Spiro Mounds Archaeological Center near Spiro is a fascinating place to learn about Oklahoma's prehistory. The leaders of Spiro Mounds ruled much of Eastern America, and their mounds were built on some astounding astrological principals. And you can attend its annual Winter Solstice Walk on December 21st that explains it all.

For a complete listing of all the holiday light displays as well as the top holiday events in Oklahoma, go to the Oklahoma Tourism and Recreation Department website: www.travelok.com.
