5 Things to Do this Holiday Season in Oklahoma City

The holiday season is officially here. It’s time to shelve the memories of the last two years that were and look forward to the holidays and new year with some festive cheer. Whether you are OKC born and bred or just visiting for the holidays, Oklahoma City has plenty to offer the young and the young-at-heart this Christmas. Read on for our top five things to do this holiday season to create memories that you will cherish for a long time to come.

  1. The Nutcracker (with a twist?):

Everyone’s favorite story of a young girl, the Mouse King, Nutcracker Prince and his toy soldier brigade comes to life in with the Oklahoma City Ballet and Tulsa Ballet  putting on shows to take you and your family on a magical journey that has enthralled audiences for over 50 years. 

Fancy something different? Then why not check out The Hip Hop Nutcracker?  Set to Tchaikovsky’s timeless music, this reinterpretation of the story features contemporary dancers, a violinist, and a DJ! Not to forget an opening sequence by the one and only MC Kurtis Blow.

  1. RIVERSPORT Winter Glow

You can’t have the holidays without some winter sports. The RIVERSPORT Winter Glow offers fun activities for the entire family. Explore Nordic-themed activities like indoor ice skating, Olympic curling, alpine climbing, skiing, and snowboarding, plus hot chocolate, holiday sweets and firepits – all with a holiday theme. With Santa visiting on Saturdays, you can be assured there’s plenty of fun for the whole family.

  1. A Night Out with Friends:

Friends are family too, right? Start a new holiday tradition with a night of fun and games at the Thunderbird Casino. Indulge in a night of hottest gaming action in the state, with popular table games like Free Bet Blackjack, Ultimate Texas Hold’em Progressive and Two-Deck Blackjack with the Bonus Spin Progressive, and free ante days on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, as well as hundreds of both new and classic gaming machines for hours of fun and winning!

  1. Win a Car!

Speaking of winning, how about winning a new car for the new year? Join the Thunderbird Casinos Players Club for a chance to win a 2021 Dodge Charger in Shawnee or a 2021 Mercedes- Benz GLC 300 4Matic in Norman. 

  1. Dickensian Christmas:

Experience what Christmas was like in Victorian England with a visit to historic downtown Claremore for Dickens on the Boulevard. Shopkeepers in Victorian garb make for stunning living history window displays while you learn about life during those times with re-enactments of blacksmiths, spinners, wood carvers and potters plying their wares. Get into the think of things by participating in a costume contest or fill your belly with food from the Victorian food court with items like stew, beans, cornbread, and cobbler.

As you can see, there are plenty of things to do to fill your days and nights this holiday season in Oklahoma. Thunderbird Casinos wishes you all Happy Holidays and a Wonderful New Year! Do drop by the Thunderbird Casino in Norman or Shawnee Oklahoma, we’d love to see you.
