KEY Oklahoma City

Spend your holiday exploring downtown Oklahoma City during the annual Downtown in December winter celebration. This month-long adventure attracts nearly half a million revelers to the City’s 10-block polar playground.

Glide into the holidays with the Braum’s Ice Rink located on the grand lawn at the Civic Center Music Hall, located at 201 N Walker. Rink hours are noon to 10 p.m. daily through January 1, including holidays. Cost to skate is $8, which includes skate rental and a
two-hour session.

There’s no business like “snow business” at Downtown in December’s newest attraction - the nation’s largest manmade snow tubing slope at the Bricktown Ballpark. Snow Tubing at the Brick is open Friday, Saturday & Sunday, through December 17 and seven-days-a-week, December 20 - January 1. Hours are 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. with the last session beginning at 8 p.m. Sessions begin on the hour every two hours. Admission is $10 for each one and a half-hour session.

Thousands of glimmering twinkles of light mingle together to create a dramatic, holiday paradise in downtown Oklahoma City’s Myriad Botanical Gardens during OG&E Garden Lights. The Crystal Bridge will open free from 6 – 9 p.m. December 3, 10 & 17 for special twilight viewings. Regular Crystal Bridge hours are 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. Monday though Saturday and noon – 6 p.m. Sunday.
