City of Edmond Brings Holiday Cheer

Edmond Electric’s Luminance kickoff and the annual Mayor’s Tree Lighting are set for Saturday, December 1 at Mitch Park. Residents and visitors will join together at the Mitch Park baseball fields for the festivities that begin at 6:00 p.m.

Luminance is the new walk-thru holiday light display that will be open to the public at the park during the month of December. For this first full year, there will be twenty 3-D displays for visitors to enjoy.

To kickoff Luminance, the annual Mayor’s Essay Contest winners will be announced in a festive setting. Included will be choir performances, the Mayor’s Tree Lighting, and a very special guest that children won’t want to miss.

“We encourage all Edmond residents to join us for this wonderful holiday tradition. The announcement of the contest winner in the lighted park setting is a great kickoff to the holiday season,” said Casey Moore, Edmond’s Public Information Officer. “Additionally, we are excited to launch Luminance for our residents and look forward to it becoming a premier holiday light exhibit in future years. We want to thank our display sponsors, the Edmond Chamber of Commerce, Edmond Economic Development Authority, and the YMCA.”

After the event, residents and visitors alike are encouraged to head across the parking lot to the annual Edmond Outdoor Ice Rink presented by Edmond Electric. The rink will stay open until 10:00 p.m. that evening. For more information about the rink, visit

It all begins Saturday, December 1 at 6 p.m. and we hope all of you will join us for this holiday fun in Edmond that helps make our community a great place to grow!
