Christmas in the Park opens at 6 p.m. on Nov. 19th, then is open 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. nightly until New Year’s Eve. The tour features 100 acres of three interconnected city parks that are decorated top to bottom with 4.5 million Christmas lights and over 500 one-of-a-kind displays. The parks are Yukon City Park, Chisholm Trail Park and Freedom Trail. Admission is free and donations, which help fund the tour, are merrily accepted.
