The 14th Annual Arvest Winterfest Celebration, presented with CommunityCare, will kick off another season from Friday November 19 through Monday January 3.
For the first time, the event will be open the week before Thanksgiving, allowing for an additional week of Winterfest.
An opening ceremony for Share the Light presented by PSO will be part of a 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. launch on November 19. Local artists will help ring in another holiday season as the festival comes to life with Winterfest tree lighting.
The Arvest Winterfest stands 44 feet tall and features 36,700 lights, 109,534 individual spikes and a base diameter of nearly 30 feet, according to a press release, which said the beautiful lights provided an ideal backdrop for vacation photographs under the Tulsa skyline. Guests can take carriage rides for an additional charge every Friday and Saturday from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Skating guides will be available for skaters. Light aids, courtesy of Chick-fil-A Tulsa Hills, can help skaters of all ages feel more confident on and off the ice.
Visitors can enjoy free entertainment from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. every Saturday until Christmas Eve. The music will be performed by children of churches, schools, non-profit organizations and choirs in the region.
The Winterfest express train, free and open to all ages, will be available every Saturday from noon to 3 p.m.
