Muskogee's Garden of Lights to charge admission this year


Work Underway for the 26th Annual Garden of Lights Season at Honor Heights Park

Celebrate the holidays and experience animated displays with more than 1,000,000 LED shimmering lights at Muskogee's 26th annual Garden of Lights, an attraction for the whole family to enjoy.

The 130-acre Honor Heights Park will be decorated for the holiday season with azalea bushes and other vegetation illuminated with color, imitating their natural state during the blooming of spring. This 35-40-minute drive thru attraction features lighted displays of deer, squirrels and birds scattered amongst a wide variety of trees wrapped in lights. Animated displays are synchronized to recorded holiday music available on your radio as you drive through the park.


More than 300,000 guests tour the Garden of Lights annually over its Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day run. Park crews are currently working on getting the park ready for the opening of the park on Thanksgiving evening beginning at 5:30 p.m. through January 1, 2019. Guests are invited to enjoy all of this holiday beauty from the comfort of a car, van, bus or hayride. Admission to the Garden of Lights is nominal, just $5 per car and $10 for oversized vehicles, such as vans/buses on every night except Mondays, which will be free. Admission fees will help sustain, preserve and grow the Garden of Lights.

Honor Heights Park is located on the west side of Muskogee off of Highway 69. Follow US 69 to Okmulgee Avenue and turn and head west. Follow Okmulgee Street to Honor Heights Drive and head north. Continue heading north on Honor Heights Drive where the street ends in the park.

Visit Muskogee and make this a family tradition for the holidays.
