Frugal Friday: November 16


This weekend is filled with plenty of free fun to start your holiday season right. Catch free light festivals, a holiday celebration on the Oklahoma River and your chance to score some free movie tickets to see the last Twilight movie. 

Holiday Light Shows 

How about driving through a show of lights, listening to Christmas carols with your family? 

Always a great way to kick off the season.

It’s that time of year, the holiday light shows are starting to open across the state. 

Midwest City’s Holiday Lights Spectacular opened Friday night.

Yukon’s Christmas in the park opens Saturday at 6 p.m. 

Ardmore’s Festival of Lights, Lawton’s Holiday in the Park and Woodward’s Crystal Christmas open Saturday at 6 p.m. as well. 

It’s free to check out all the lights. 

Metro Family Magazine has a complete list of holiday light displays here.

Holiday River Parade 

Want more lights?

Take your family to the Oklahoma River for a Holiday River Parade next Friday, Nov. 23.

See as many as 20 decorated boats and end the evening with a spectacular fireworks display. 

The best spots to see the Holiday parade? Regatta Park, the Boathouse District and Wiley Post Park. 

Again the doors open at 4 p.m. next Friday, Nov. 23.

Brad Edwards Warmth 4 Winter Coat Drive 

With the temperatures dropping, it’s time to think about the Brad Edwards Warmth 4 Winter program again. 

With the help of the Salvation Army, area dry cleaners, our Oklahoma rotary clubs and other groups, we are collecting gently used coats and cold weather gear like gloves and scarves for those in need. 

Friday County Commissioner Brian Maughan had a terrific kick off with the South Oklahoma City Rotary Club.
