Holidays in Enid 2022: Like our own Hallmark Christmas card

Posted by Rob Houston, Visit Enid Director on 11/11/2022

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 real ice, open air ice rink - Holidays on Ice in Downtown Enid - runs November 18 through January 8.  The One Enid - the world's tallest fresh-cut Christmas tree - will be lit November 25, standing tall over downtown Enid through January 3. In between are many activities throughout Enid to get you in the holiday spirit.
