Festival of Lights Christmas Parade near Tulsa, OK

The Festival of Lights Parade in Sand Springs, a suburb of Tulsa, Oklahoma, is one of the largest and oldest Christmas parades in the northern part of the state. It is held in early December each year and takes about two hours to pass. It all starts at Second and Main Streets, and goes a long way down Main in the downtown area. The event is free. It is a good idea to get there early as in recent years about 25,000 people have lined the streets to see this parade. It normally starts around 7 p.m.

The parade of lights features more than 100 Christmas themed entries. Many of the floats, and some of the marchers, are all decked out with lights. Even though there is plenty of light on the street, the parade itself illuminates the night as it passes. Floats, marching bands, helium filled balloons, and Santa Claus himself are all part of this parade. There will be dogs marching, as well as people on horseback.

The parade gets bigger each year. While the classics, such as floats decorated with Christmas finery and marching bands, stay the same, there are always new things to see each year. This year's theme is 'Christmas on the Farm,' and each year has its own theme. See what kind of farm related holiday local people will come up with as they try to do better than the year before. Each year a new theme is introduced. Awards are given for best entry and best float, as well as a few other categories. There are also food vendors along the route, as well as some restaurants.
