This weekend is the last chance to enjoy the outdoor ice skating at Winterfest.
The event, outside the BOK Center on Third Street between Denver and Frisco avenues, ends on Sunday.
Hours are noon-11 p.m. Saturday and noon-10 p.m. Sunday.
Event organizers said so far, an estimated 100,000 people have attended Winterfest.
"This has been another great year for Winterfest," said BOK General Manager John Bolton. "We appreciate the continued community support in helping us celebrate five years of this Tulsa holiday tradition."
In four years, attendance at Winterfest soared from 35,000 visitors in 2008 to more than 130,000 in 2011.
Admission is $5-$10.
A climate-controlled warming tent and seasonal concessions are also available at the event. Carriage rides will be offered from 6 to 9 p.m. Carriage rides are $10 per adult and $5 for children 12 and younger.
