This December OKC will be presenting a downtown parade with floats that actually float. The second annual Devon Energy Holiday Parade on the Oklahoma River is scheduled for Dec. 10.
Boats decorated in holiday lights will be accompanied by fireworks along the Oklahoma River. The parade of boats will begin about 6 p.m. at Oklahoma City's Regatta Park and then travel west to Wiley Post Park. The boats will return to Regatta Park after the fireworks display. In 2004, it was estimated that around 35,000 people attended the inaugural river parade.
Those who would like to enter a boat in the parade can download entry forms here or pick up one in person at Downtown Oklahoma City Inc., 210 Park Ave., Suite 230. Forms also may be picked up at metro area boat dealers.
Entertainment starts at 4pm and the fireworks will begin at 7:30 p.m. Admission and parking are free!
