The city of Enid Parks and Recreation Department will offer a drive-through Christmas in the Park at Meadowlake Park, 1200 W. Rupe, four consecutive Saturdays beginning Nov. 28.

The event is scheduled for 6-8 p.m., Nov. 28, Dec. 5, 12 and 19. Christmas in the Park is free for all ages.

Christmas in the Park will be a drive-through-only event this year, for the sake of safety during the COVID-19 pandemic. But, each vehicle will be “given a bag of goodies as you enjoy your Christmas cruise,” according to a city press release. There will be lights and characters posted on both the north and south side of the park.

Vehicles will enter the drive-through experience from the north entrance, where attendees “will be greeted by one of many holiday and winter characters such as Mrs. Claus, the Grinch, Rudolph, Frosty and many more,” according to the press release.

The city of Enid also will be hosting a toy drive for Toys for Tots, and will have a drop-off section for collecting new, unwrapped toys.
