Rhema Christmas Lights Extravaganza

Commencing on November 22 at 6 PM and continuing until January 1, 2024, from 5:30 PM to 11:30 PM, the Rhema Christmas Lights Extravaganza is a breathtaking showcase of luminous brilliance. This grand tradition commenced with approximately 60,000 lights in 1982, and over four decades later, it has evolved into a spectacle adorned with millions of newer, brighter, and energy-efficient LED lights sprawled across the 110-acre campus.

 

On Thanksgiving Eve, Wednesday, November 22, at 6 PM, the enchanting lights will once again illuminate, continuing through January 1, regardless of rain, snow, or shine. This magnificent exhibition annually draws nearly 500,000 visitors from Oklahoma and neighboring states, offering free admission to all.

 

Returning this year is the captivating 50-figure nativity scene, accompanied by a delightful gingerbread family, complete with lollipops and gumdrops. Visitors can also revel in the sight of a synchronized musical presentation featuring trees and dancing snowflakes. As always, the vibrant Rhema Park bridge stands as a remarkable centerpiece for the entire display. For those seeking an even more magical experience, horse-drawn carriage rides and an array of concessions are readily available.

 

The Rhema Christmas lights display was thoughtfully designed to provide a safe, serene, and joyful atmosphere, allowing people to relish the true spirit of the Christmas season. Our goal is to enrich our community's festive spirit while directing visitors towards the core of Christmas—Jesus Christ, the Light of the World. Come, join us, and create unforgettable Christmas memories at the Rhema Christmas Extravaganza.
