OKLAHOMA CITY (November 29, 2022) – On Saturday, December 3, RIVERSPORT is bringing back an Oklahoma City family favorite - Holiday River Parade brought to you by Braum’s. This year's event happens in the Boathouse District and will feature water skiing elves, holiday-themed boats sparkling on the Oklahoma River, and fireworks.
