BROKEN ARROW, Okla. - Two million Christmas lights will come aglow Wednesday evening in Broken Arrow with the throwing of a switch, bringing to light this year's Christmas Lights Display as Rhema.
Rhema Bible Church will hold its 30th annual lighting ceremony at 6 p.m. at its campus located 1025 West Kenosha. At the event, not only will those many lamps come to light, but Santa come to life and will walk the park while passing out candy canes.
New to this year's Christmas lights display are two floodlights at the bridge capable of producing 16 million colors. Also featured will be a gingerbread family, horses and cowboys and Santa's sleigh filled with presents – displays all outlined in lights.
A 50-figure nativity scene will be on display as well.
Visitors can enjoy concessions and pictures with Santa. Even horse and buggy rides will be available at sundown Nov. 22–24 and 30; Dec. 1, 7–8; and nightly Dec.14–24.
The lights, synchronized with Christmas music, will stay on every night from 5:30 to 11:30 p.m. until Jan. 1. Admission is free.
