Christmas in the Park
Holiday excitement and free family fun are in store at Yukon’s breathtaking Christmas in the Park, a magical wonderland of visual entertainment offered starting the Saturday before Thanksgiving at 6 p.m., then running from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. every night through New Year’s Eve. Motorists from across the country drive along nearly three miles of illuminated fun to see 5 million twinkling lights and over 500 one-of-a-kind lighted displays. Guests may also enjoy walking through the lights or, for a small fee, riding the Santa Express Train.
The tour starts in Yukon City Park and concludes in Chisholm Trail Park.
When you exit Chisholm Trail Park, don’t forget to stop by the Character House for selfies with your favorite Christmas characters. Santa will even make appearances Friday and Saturday evenings!
Features for Walking the Tour
Walkers are encouraged to stop by several “selfie stations” scattered throughout the parks. These festive stations are a great backdrop for a family photo or your next profile picture. Be sure to tag the City of Yukon in your pictures! Walkers, as well as those who want to visit Santa, are encouraged to park in the Oklahoma Parking Lot, located on the north end of Chisholm Trail Park.
At the Santa Express Train Station, young and old alike will love taking photos in the adorable Gingerbread Family Photo Cutouts, in the airplane, on the toy train, or beside Czechers the massive polar bear! The recently added singing Christmas tree is sure to add some magic to your visit. For a small fee, the ever-popular Santa Express Train carries you on an enchanting ride among millions of Christmas lights.
A new 30-foot RGB Christmas Tree presents a stunning light show throughout your visit. Enjoy animations and dancing lights, all synched to your favorite Christmas tunes. Other recent additions include a majestic unicorn and juggling dragon.
Admission is free, and donations are merrily accepted at both the Chisholm Trail Park exit and the City Park exit.
