Holidays in Enid 2021: Like our own Hallmark Christmas card

Posted by Rob Houston, Visit Enid Director on 11/09/2021

The One Enid

Community Christmas tree? Check. Outdoor ice skating? Check. A drive-through Christmas lights display? Check. Cut your own Christmas tree? Check. Fireworks? Of course!

Some have compared Enid to a setting for a television Christmas movie, and who are we to argue? Enid's holiday season begins on November 19 when Holidays on Ice in Downtown Enid opens, and it continues through January 6, the final night The One Enid - the world's tallest fresh-cut Christmas tree - will be lit. In between are many activities throughout Enid to get you in the holiday spirit.
