200 S. Denver Ave.
Downtown Tulsa is transformed into a festive wonderland during Winterfest, now in its 12th year and recently named by People magazine as the state’s top holiday destination. Enjoy skating over a 9,000-square-foot outdoor ice rink — larger than the famous one in New York City’s Rockefeller Center — admire what is billed as the state’s tallest Christmas tree adorned with about 150,000 lights, take a ride in a horse-drawn carriage, listen to live entertainment or take the Winterfest Express train that will be chugging around the festival site on Saturdays.
It all begins Saturday, Nov. 23, with the Share the Light opening ceremony presented by PSO. Local performers, a fireworks display from Imperial Fireworks and the official lighting of the Winterfest tree will help ring in the holiday season. Admission is free. Skate rental is $12.
