Downtown in December

And even more entertainment awaits, as Devon presents the return of Downtown in December, a collection of holiday events produced by Downtown Oklahoma City Inc. Now in its ninth year, Downtown in December has grown to be bigger and better than ever, with many all-new attractions. Keep your eyes peeled — and on our Twitter account, @downtownokcinc — for appearances by Oklahoma City Thunder Girls and Rumble; Oklahoma City Barons players, Ice Girls and Derrick; and Phil the Penguin!

Most of the events are free, and all are family-friendly, so see why no holiday season in OKC is complete without us! For more information, visit
