For the first time ever, OKC will kick off the holiday season with a tree lighting festival broadcast online and through the News 9 app! The festival will feature many beloved, familiar sights as well as some new favorites filmed in the recently restored Yale Theater and other locations downtown.
News 9 will bring the holiday special to homes across the city and the program will feature original music by The Imaginaries, classic Christmas songs by Tony Foster Jr. and Kandace Duke, a selection of carols from Lyric Theatre’s cast of A Christmas Carol, and the Oklahoma-favorite I Want A Hippopotamus for Christmas by a Lyric Theatre Academy student. Local musical artist Jabee will read the classic Twas the Night Before Christmas and Mayor Holt will be on-site in Bricktown to end the evening with the traditional countdown to the lighting of the tree.
