ADA, OKLAHOMA – The Chickasaw Nation and City of Ada will usher in the holiday season with a number of winter festivities 6-8 p.m., Monday, Nov. 20, at Wintersmith Park.

Attendees will take a “Santa Stroll” together around the upper trail after meeting behind the lodge at 6 p.m. At 6:30 p.m., Chickasaw Nation Governor Bill Anoatubby will illuminate the 30-foot tree near the Wintersmith lodge.

In doing so, Gov. Anoatubby will mark the beginning of Ada’s yearly display of lights around the park, town and Chickasaw Nation Headquarters.

After the lights come on, activities will be available in and around the lodge. There will be crafts, cookies and coloring for children until 8 p.m. Courtesy of the Diamond K Kiwanis Club, Polar Express rides on the train and hot chocolate will be available at no charge. Santa himself even plans to make an appearance.
