Spend your holiday exploring downtown Oklahoma City during the ninth annual Downtown in December winter celebration. Only in Downtown Oklahoma City can you experience the thrill of outdoor ice skating, exhilarating snow tubing rides, water taxi excursions, free museum Sundays, a magically-lit botanical garden and plenty of holiday cheer for the entire family! Festivities run through the New Year.
The grand lawn at the Civic Center Music Hall will transform into an icy entertainment zone when the popular Devon Ice Rink opens. The 62-foot by 150-foot rink is expected to attract more than 26,000 thrill-seeking skaters in 2010. Cost to skate is $8, which includes skate rental and a two-hour session. The Civic Center is located at 201 N Walker.
Go extreme this winter, when you go Snow Tubing at the Brick, the nation’s largest manmade snow tubing slope. Feel the wind in your face as you cruise down the slope from the ballpark’s upper deck all the way to second base on a hill of manmade snow. If that sounds too scary, a second, smaller and shorter slide is available for children and the less adventurous. Tubing is open through January 2.
All aboard…for a free adventure cruise on a Bricktown Water Taxi during Holidays on the Canal. The colors of the season will reflect off the waters of the Bricktown Canal as you float by great restaurants and clubs, offering some of Oklahoma’s finest dining and entertainment.
