Chickasha Festival of Light
Since 1992, the Chickasha Festival of Light, a volunteer-run, non-profit organization, has been transforming Shannon Springs Park’s 43 acres into a magnificent light display during the holiday season. What started out as a small group of local citizens with a dream to spark community spirit has become a nationally-recognized Christmas light display. The Festival of Light also offers carriage rides, Santa pictures, food trucks, carnival rides and an ice skating rink. Click here to visit the Chickasha Festival of Light website.
