OKLAHOMA CITY (October 29, 2021) –Winter Glow is coming to RIVERSPORT for the holidays. This new winter experience includes ice skating, curling, climbing, skiing and snowboarding, plus hot chocolate, s’mores, firepits, holiday lights and Santa on Saturdays. 

RIVERSPORT’s new synthetic ice rink and curling courts offer a total ice experience without ice. Winter Glow will also feature four indoor climbing experiences – a cavern wall, leap of faith, adventure climb, speed wall – and a simulated ice climbing, all decorated in a holiday theme. 

Winter Glow will open Friday, November 26, 2021, and run through Sunday, January 9. 

Winter Glow is included in RIVERSPORT season memberships and day passes are available: $19.99 for adults, $9.99 for youth ages 12 and younger, and $4.99 for spectators. The Winter Glow pass includes skiing, ice skating, curling and climbing. All gear is provided for skiing, skating and climbing as part of the guest's passes. 

On Saturday, December 4, the Holiday River Parade returns to the Oklahoma River as part of Winter Glow. The annual community event wasn’t held in 2020, but this year will see the return of skiing elves, decorated boats sparkling on the Oklahoma River, fireworks, a new laser light show and more! 

The Holiday River Parade honors event originator Mike McAuliffe who passed away in 2020. McAuliffe created many events for Oklahoma City over many decades with the Holiday River Parade being one of the most popular and enduring. 

Winter Glow and the Holiday River Parade are made possible by a grant from the Ford Family Foundation and presented by Gardner Tanenbaum Holdings with support from American Fidelity, Cox Communications, Heartland, Payment Systems, Mason Realty Investments, Think Big Stuff, OGE, KFOR Oklahoma’s News 4, KMGL, Jake FM, The Franchise, KRXO, The Oklahoma Media Company, and Lamar Outdoor.
