Medicine Park prepares Christmas carnival
MEDICINE PARK — Santa Claus is coming to town Saturday for the cobblestone community’s annual Christmas Carnival and parade.
Medicine Park is one of Old Saint Nick’s favorite stops in Southwest Oklahoma and he plans to return this year to participate in the parade and to listen to last-minute Christmas wishes. He might even have some special early Christmas gifts for all of the good boys and girls who come visit.
Pat Shaughnessy, organizer of the annual carnival and parade, said Santa likes to toss out candy in his other parade appearances, but he does something special for Medicine Park.
“We discourage throwing out candy here,” he said. “Instead, he gives out an enormous amount of plush toys to everyone.”
