Holiday Events in Oklahoma City 2017When you're living in Oklahoma City, there is always something to do, especially during the holiday season. The only challenge that Springs at May Lakes and Springs at Memorial residents are faced with, though, is trying to narrow down the list of must-do holiday activities.

Here are 5 holiday events in Oklahoma City that you don't want to miss:

1. Skating at Devon Ice Rink
Myriad Botanical Gardens
310 W Reno Ave, Oklahoma City

There's no better way to get into the holiday spirit than ice skating on the outdoor rink in the Myriad Botanical Gardens. The skating season opened on November 10 and is open seven days a week through January 28. Don't have ice skates? No problem. The $13 admission charge includes a skate rental. Come on a Friday night in December for Rock N' Skate Night and skate to the tunes of a live DJ.

2. Bricktown Canal Lights
Along the canal in Bricktown, Oklahoma City

Looking for a unique way to experience holiday lights this year? You must check out the Bricktown Canal Lights between November 24 and January 1. Enjoy a stroll along the canal in Bricktown to experience the festive lights or take a free water taxi (every Thursday through Sunday evening). Bricktown is just a short walk from the Myriad Botanical Gardens, so starting your evening with ice skating and ending it with the Bricktown Canal Lights makes for a romantic holiday date idea.

3. The Nutcracker
Civic Center Music Hall
201 N Walker Ave, Oklahoma City

Make memories this holiday season by experiencing The Nutcracker performed by the Oklahoma City Ballet. The show runs from December 9 to December 19 and features more than 100 children from the Oklahoma City Ballet Yvonne Chouteau School and the Oklahoma City Philharmonic to create a dream-like production that the whole family will enjoy.
