Auto Alley keeps tradition with holiday open house shopping events

By Staff Reports / Development / November 19, 2020

The Automobile Alley Association and Downtown Oklahoma City Partnership will host the fifth annual Lights On Broadway event this season. To make the event as safe as possible and decrease sidewalk and in-store congestion, the event will span four Saturdays: Nov. 21, Nov. 28, Dec. 5, and Dec. 12. Each Saturday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., various retail shops and restaurants will feature buzz-worthy window displays in addition to family-friendly activities, special promotions, and giveaways. 

Amidst the stunning light display, attendees can enjoy additional outdoor programming throughout the district including the much-anticipated free carriage rides sponsored by RCB Bank. This year there won't be long lines for carriage rides thanks to a new online reservation system. Attendees can sign up in advance for a free 15-minute ride. Ride reservations will open weekly on the Monday before the event at 9 a.m. 

The Curbside Chronicle pop-up will return and will be located at NW 8th Street and Broadway Avenue selling holiday wrapping paper benefiting the Wrap Up Homelessness program. One hundred percent of the proceeds from each package of wrapping paper go towards The Curbside Chronicle and its mission to employ and empower men and women transitioning out of homelessness in OKC. Stop by their table Nov. 28, Dec. 5, and Dec. 12.  

Attendees can view the event map online or pick one up at participating businesses throughout the district. Business promotions and programming subject to change.
