OKC's New Year's Eve Celebration
December 31, 2022

Thank you to everyone who rang in the new year at Opening Night 2023! 

OKC’s largest family-friendly New Year’s Eve celebration, Opening Night 2023, was presented by MidFirst Bank and the Inasmuch Foundation. 

Over 5,000 people bought their wristbands and headed to Bicentennial Park for a night of live entertainment throughout the evening. That included music, a mural competition, and a children’s area with themed, hands-on art projects. There was fun for everyone all night long.  

The fun night was capped off at midnight with our fireworks extravaganza, an exuberant blend of pyrotechnics, music and celebration accompanied by the rising of the ball.
