The German-American churches in Northern Oklahoma celebrate such a Yule wonderland, join First Lutheran Church as they celebrate on the first Saturday of December in Ponca City from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Shop the arts and crafts for Christmas gifts and decorations including Native American wares while being enchanted by the ambience of Christmas aromas and the sounds of carols. Of special interest is the music, an all day concert of choirs and contemporary artists, while a "Cookie Walk" of over 300 dozen Holiday cookies is on sale. Sip hot chocolate or spiced cider and sample the German food. The day is culminated by a fantastic lights show put on by the students of First Lutheran School. Vendors may want to consider participating in this highly unique one-day festival. Both indoor and outdoor booths are available and prices for a space are enough to make Scrooge smile. Contact: (580) 761-4657.
