Every year, just before Thanksgiving, a glowing greeting adorns the north side of I-40: “Merry Christmas from the City of Yukon.” Upon taking exit 138 (or 139, if you’re coming from the West), feel the excitement as you follow the pointing snowmen to the main attraction. Finally, start your journey through a magnificent arch that reads “Christmas in the Park.”

Follow the winding path through three interconnected parks transformed into a holiday wonderland. It’s no wonder Christmas in the Park holds the distinction of largest drive-thru light display in Oklahoma, boasting over 5 million lights and 500 whimsical displays. We’re also pretty proud of the fact that we won the 2021 Oklahoma Redbud Award for Outstanding Event.

There are three ways to enjoy Christmas in the Park. Motorists from the contiguous 48 states have driven through this wonderland. Guests can get up-close and personal to the lights with a walking tour. For a small fee, the Santa Express takes guests on a tour of the lights that adorn Chisholm Trail Park. Twinkling animated displays amuse and entertain as you leisurely make your way through, while LED displays synchronized with music wow young and old alike.
