Only in OKlahoma Show

Nov 29, 2021

On today's episode of the Only in OK Show, we discuss some of the fun events happening throughout the Oklahoma during December.  If you want to find something new to do this month, check out the show.
Holiday in the Ark is a brand new for 2021. This festive event welcomes everyone out to the Endangered Ark Foundation in Hugo for a special meet and greet with Santa, Mrs. Claus, elves, the Grinch and elephants. Guests will be able to feed and interact with the elephants and shop for everyone on their Christmas list.
The Endangered Ark Foundation is a private nonprofit dedicated to ensuring the future of Asian elephants in North America, providing a retirement ranch for circus elephants, and educating the public about this endangered species.
Hugo, OK started as a railroad hub in the early 1900s, was a hotbed of activity, with a vivid mix of dance hall girls, hustlers and gunfighters, a Harvey House Restaurant, and at one time, a dozen circuses wintering nearby to take advantage of the moderate climate and easy rail access. The Frisco Depot Museum in the restored former Harvey House Restaurant captures some of this rollicking past, and Mount Olivet Cemetery showcases the final resting places for rodeo greats. The cemetery also features a special area known as "Showmen's Rest," which features unique headstones and gravesites for circus performers and owners.
Pollard Theatre is a 501c3 nonprofit, whose mission is to produce professional theatre that engages and inspires Oklahoma's audiences, and contributes to the quality of life and economy of our community and state.
As Oklahoma's territorial capital, Guthrie's ongoing restoration efforts make the town's downtown area the largest Historic Preservation District in the nation. Take a trolley tour through downtown to find fascinating history, one-of-a-kind stores and more than a dozen bed and breakfasts housed in charming Victorian-era buildings, or hear the history behind local hauntings on a spooky Guthrie Ghost Walk. Discover the diverse collections of Guthrie's many museums, including the Oklahoma Territorial Museum & Carnegie Library.
At Tulsa Botanic Garden's Garden of Lights event you can escape the holiday hustle and bustle and make memories with family and friends as you stroll the Garden illuminated with colorful lights.
