28th Annual Chickasha Festival of Light

The Opening of the 28th Annual Festival of Light is this Saturday. The 43 acre Shannon Springs Park will once again burst into a wonderland of light and motion heralding in the holiday and holy season.  
 Festival hours will be 6 pm to 10 pm Sunday through Thursday and open until 11 pm on Friday and Saturday.
 The Chickasha Festival of Light has announced that there would be a new sister attraction happening in December at the Rock Island Train Depot.
 The new attraction will be called “December at the Depot” and will occur every Friday and Saturday night, the first four weekends of December from 5:30 pm to 10:30 pm beginning with Friday December 3rd.
 The new event will have a shuttle that transports patrons to and from the Depot to Shannon Springs Park, pop-up shop vendors for Christmas shopping, food trucks, Santa photos and a few amusement park style rides for children.
 The shuttle system is being provided by the Chickasha Public Schools and will cost $2 a person to ride. The only place to purchase a shuttle ticket will be at the Rock Island Train Depot in an effort to encourage patrons to park downtown and enjoy all that Chickasha Avenue has to offer.
 Shuttle rides will begin at 5:30 pm and run through 10:30 pm.
 The pop-up shop vendors will be inside the Rock Island Train Depot and will offer a variety of gift items.
. Santa Claus will also be in attendance at December at the Depot with photography being provided by Snowflake Photography.
 Other special events happening during December at the Depot include free Christmas Pet Photos and a performance by Mitch Williams Band on Saturday, Dec 11th. Additional activities for December at the Depot are being added daily, details at their Facebook page.
