How much holiday spirit can you jam into one weekend? With Downtown in December, it turns out, quite a bit.
If you’re one of those who prefers a little scenery with your run, you’re in for a holiday treat. Midwest City Parks and Recreation will host the eighth annual holiday lights spectacular and 5k Nightlight Run, 5:45 p.m. Saturday at Joe B. Barnes Regional Park, 8700 E. Reno Ave. in Midwest City. Registration is $25- $30. Call 739-1293 or visit midwestcityok.org.
Not ready to let go of the holiday season? UCO gives us one last hurrah with a dazzling array of lights known as WinterGlow. The event, which was originally scheduled for Dec. 6 but was rescheduled due to weather, also features festive activities for the whole family. Bask in its glow 6-9 p.m. Friday at the University of Central Oklahoma, 100 N. University Drive in Edmond. Admission is free. Call 974-2363 or visit uco.edu/winterglow.
