Wagoner may be the best kept secret no more … it has become one of the best places for holiday fun and family traditions. The City of Wagoner is busy preparing for the holidays!
The Christmas season begins officially the evening of November 22nd and will continue thru December 31st. The opening activities include the Tree Lighting, Costumed Characters, Santa Photos, Wagoner High School Band and Cheerleaders sharing holiday cheer.
Activities throughout November and December will include the nightly light and music show on S. Main and Semore Park, Christmas Parade, Winter Concerts, Twinkle 5K Run over 125 lighted displays and more!
The Annual Christmas Parade will be held Thursday night December 2nd at 7p. Marching bands, floats, costumed characters and of course Mr. & Mrs. Claus will make a special trip from the North Pole to Wagoner for the evening parade. This years’ theme “Santa Paws Comes to Town,” Grand Marshall will be Dr. Larry Peters, retired veterinarian. Don’t miss this family fun.
Wagoner area residents and Commercial businesses in Wagoner are encouraged to participate in lighting, yard decorations and inside tree decorating contests. Cash prizes will be awarded; sponsored by Wagoner Economic Development Authority and Ft. Gibson Lake Association.
Be sure to shop and dine in Wagoner during the holidays-area restaurants are offering special discounts and you can also Scan to Win A Christmas Grand from merchants as well. It pays to shop local.
Over 125 displays and snowflakes light up the night on N. & S. Hwy 69, Hwy 51 and through downtown along McQuarrie Street and on SE 15th Street. Don’t forget there is a hanging snowflake somewhere that is different and unique…a fun game to play with your children while touring the lighted displays.
The nightly light show has been a favorite since its inception two years ago. The Show runs nightly from 5:30p-10:30p. The shows are designed for all ages. The kiddos will love Grandy the Snowman and his singing snowmen. The show was designed by Jeremy Williams. The light show is sponsored by GRDA, Blue Sky Bank, Wooley Plumbing, WalMart, Green Country Lighted Displays, Wagoner Public Schools and Wagoner Public Works.
The popular winter concerts will be held December 2, 3, 9 and 10th at the Wagoner Civic Center Auditorium.
