Top places in OKC to find holiday joy

Holiday activities look different this year, but there are still plenty of opportunities to find holiday spirit, family fun and safe shopping at local attractions and merchants.

The grounds of the Myriad Botanical Gardens will be filled with lights, festive décor and a carousel near the Children’s Garden. They are also hosting workshops for all ages to make gingerbread houses, natural ornaments and decorations and evergreen wreaths.

The Devon Ice Rink is the perfect place to work off some holiday indulgences. The ice rink is open varied hours Monday through Sunday, with a limited number of skaters allowed for social distancing measures. Tickets are available online for the first time; a great way to reserve your spot.

If it’s live performances that inspire your holiday, travel back to Victorian times for Lyric Theatre’s production of A Christmas Carol, presented outdoors through Dec. 23 at the Harn Homestead. Canterbury Christmas Concert is Dec. 6, the OKC Philharmonic presents A Classic Christmas Dec. 4 and 5 and OKC Ballet presents The Nutcracker through Dec. 20, all hosted at Civic Center Music Hall.

The Holiday Pop-Up Shops are back in Midtown, with a twist. Now an all-outdoor event, this holiday market will feature about 12-14 local shops, set up in tents on the corner of Hudson and NW 10 Street. The shops will be surrounded by a tree lot and 30-foot tall Midtown Tree.
