Remember when you were a kid and your family would go downtown to ice skate, ride a snow tube and look at Christmas lights? Yeah, I sure don’t. That’s because Downtown Oklahoma City was a scary ghost town from the 1960s through the early 1990s. The only things to do in downtown then were watch Blazer’s games, eat Indian Tacos in April and run from homeless people.
Yeah, it’s safe to say things have changed. Now Downtown OKC is the place to be. If you need proof, just look at Downtown in December presented by Devon Energy. This yearly event provides a bunch of fun holiday activities for families, couples and single people like me who have nothing better to do on a Wednesday night.
Because the people at Downtown OKC are awesome, they gave us a $100 Downtown in December Prize Pack to give away to one lucky reader. To register, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post and tell us the worst Christmas present you’ve ever received. We’ll then draw one comment at random. Whoever submitted that comment will win the following:
Four passes and skate rental to the Devon Ice Rink: The Devon Ice Rink is always fun, especially when you’re a gifted athlete like me and like to dazzle the crowd with incredible triple toe-loop, double-lutz combinations. But don’t worry, even if you’re an uncoordinated pansy who clings to the wall like Clark Matthews, outdoor ice skating is still pretty fun.
Four passes to OK Cityscape: I was trying to think of a clever way to describe this thing, but then I started thinking about the time I stepped on a Lego barefoot. Instead, I’ll let whoever wrote the content on the Downtown in December website describe this event: “OK Cityscape is presented at a kids' eye view, brought to life with lights, sounds effects and animatronics. The 2011 display brings a fun alien invasion to OK Cityscape, complete with spaceships, extraterrestrials, and a host of special effects. A Kids Construction Zone also allows kids to build their own creations. Proceeds from the exhibit go to Oklahoma City Educare, a flagship early childhood education center.”
Once again, to register for this prize pack just leave a comment and tell us the worst Christmas gift you’ve ever received. The deadline to register is Wednesday, December 7th at 11:59pm.
p.s. - Thanks goes out to Downtown in December presented by Devon Energy for providing this prize pack. Good luck!
