It’s that time of year again. There’s snow, lights, carolers, and a range of holiday events. In fact, Oklahoma City is home to a range of activities and celebrations at the end of the year, many of which are perfect for families and friends. You can ice skate, spend time with Santa, or simply enjoy the holiday atmosphere. There’s a long list of holiday events in Oklahoma City that you should attend this year.
One of the top events in OKC is Downtown in December. Presented by Devon, Downtown in December is actually a series of events that extends over several weeks. For example, you can spend Saturdays with Santa in in the heart of downtown, see the tree lighting festival, shop at the deluxe winter market, or skate at the Devon Ice Rink. You can follow the events through the hashtag #DowntownInDecember.
Art lovers will enjoy the Oklahoma City Ballet. You can see holiday favorites like The Nutcracker, a classic performance made famous by the music of Tchaikovsky. Directed by Robert Mills, the OKC Ballet has been recognized by The Wall Street Journal, Dance magazine, and Playbill.
The ballet and Downtown in December are just two fun things that we at Westpointe CDJR recommend this winter.
Thanksgiving is the time of year that families around the country gather to celebrate their blessings. There are a number of things to do this Thanksgiving in Oklahoma City, as there are multiple seasonal events for families, couples, and individuals. There’s truly something for everyone this Turkey Day in our neighborhood.
According to Metro Family Magazine, on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays through November 26th, there will be fall family wagon rides and cookouts at the Honey Lee Ranch. This includes a campfire, s’mores, and more. There will be registration beforehand, as well as two ride times: 6:30pm and 7:00pm.
There’s also a free Santa’s Wonderland at Bass Pro Shops, offering arts and crafts, activities, giveaways, and, naturally, the jolly man himself. There will be a complete list of events on the store website, and the wonderland will be up from November 11th to December 24th. Be sure to plan your visit with the kids.
Finally, there will be a number of 5Ks this Thanksgiving, especially on November 23rd. The Edmond Turkey Trot will be a 5K with an optional one-mile Family Wobble, and you’re also encouraged to bring dogs (on leashes). The OKC Turkey Tracks 5K will be in downtown OKC starting at 8:30am, and there will be a Turkey Day 5K at Normal High School benefiting the Cleveland County Habitat for Humanity.
These are just a few fun things to do this Thanksgiving with friends and family. We at Westpointe CDJR are glad the holidays are finally here again.
Our appreciation of the sophisticated Chrysler lineup at Westpointe CDJR is no mystery. Therefore, it makes sense that we would get a kick out of spotting Chryslers in films! Here are a few instances where you can spot a Chrysler vehicle on the big screen.
The Great Dictator (1940)
Charlie Chaplin fans may remember spotting a 1932 Chrysler Imperial Convertible in Chaplin’s satirical—and at the time controversial—film The Great Dictator, which makes fun of Nazi Germany.
The Hangover Part III (2013)
In the third film in this comedy trilogy, the Wolfpack gang is at it again. In one part of the movie, their minivan—a 2008 Chrysler Town & Country—gets rammed off the road by a semi-truck. Of course, any proud driver of the Town & Country would never stand for this in real life. But in The Hangover Part III, this leads the Wolfpack to be taken hostage, steering the film in a wild plot direction.
If you’ve ever been curious about what Chrysler will look like in the future, check out Logan, the final film in the Wolverine segment starring Hugh Jackman. The film depicts a 2024 Chrysler E8. Obviously, that car doesn’t exist (yet?) but it’s fun to imagine a long limousine version of the Chrysler 300.

Did you know that Chrysler vehicles played an important role in each of these movies? Check out which Chrysler models had starring roles.
Jackman’s final Wolverine film took a darker spin on the superhero genre, centering on a road trip involving Wolverine (whose actual name is Logan), Professor X, and a young mutant girl. The road trip in question takes place in the future, featuring a “2024 Chrysler E8,” which is simply an elongated Chrysler 300.
St. Vincent (2014)
The events that kick off the plot of this film—in which Bill Murray plays a Vietnam vet named Vincent that befriends a woman and her young son—begin with a car crash that results in him meeting the boy’s mother. Vincent’s car involved in the crash is a 1984 Chrysler LeBaron Town & Country Convertible.
The Hangover Part III (2013)
The “Wolfpack” returns for another zany adventure, in which they get behind the wheel of a minivan—a 2008 Chrysler Town & Country.
It’s a collection of four different interrelated stories taking place in Morocco, Japan, the US, and Mexico. The Mexico story follows a nanny driving the children she watches to Tijuana in a 1988 Chrysler New Yorker.
The Great Dictator (1940)
Charlie Chaplin made waves with this satire of Nazi Germany, in which he played both Hitler and a Jewish barber. The latter, at one point, disguises himself as Hitler and drives off in a 1932 Chrysler Imperial Convertible.
You can see many Chryslers in movies if you keep your eyes open; they cover a variety of genres and show off several different segments from the brand.
Staying productive can be a major issue for everyone, no matter your age, lifestyle, or background. Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to keeping getting things done throughout the day, week, month, and year. We here at Westpointe CDJR have a few ways to be more productive this spring that we’d like to share with you!
- Shorten Your Emails – Keeping up with an ever-growing inbox of emails can be a hassle and kill any sense of productivity you had. Sometimes responding to everyone can cause major delays, especially if you tend to be fairly long winded. To fix the problem, try to keep all email responses to five sentences or less. Try to make your signature stand out a little as well. Doing so will allow you to get through a massive number of emails and still have time left for other work or activities.
- Keep Lists – Keeping a list of everything you need to do is a classic way of ensuring you stay productive. Add things like visiting people, getting work done, chores, and appointments to ensure you never miss anything important!
- Don’t Wait to Clean – One of the best ways to get rid of a sense of dread when doing a daily chore is to clean up immediately after completing it. Doing so allows you to start with a clean slate rather than yesterday’s mess.
It’s been quite a while since the truck segment has seen a true master of off-roading take the streets, but that’s going to change in just a few years. Fiat Chrysler announced the return of a Jeep Wrangler pickup truck come 2019. While there’s no name and few solid specifications to go on, it looks to be a model that’s bound to dominate the segment.
Known for its off-road capability, the Jeep brand hasn’t seen a pickup truck since the Comanche was discontinued in 1992. The next Jeep pickup will be based on the renowned Jeep Wrangler, one of the brand’s most iconic vehicles.
Set to hit the market in late 2019, the new pickup could bear a familiar name. Fiat Chrysler executives are considering some Jeep nameplates of the past, though none has been confirmed just yet.
The Wrangler pickup will be built in the Toledo plant, just like its predecessors. A new Jeep Wrangler will officially launch towards the end of 2017 following a $700-million retooling.
If the new Jeep Wrangler pickup truck is anything like it’s rumored to be, then the competition better step up their game.
We here at Westpointe CDJR are pumped for the arrival of the new Jeep Wrangler pickup truck!
Traveling can be one of the best ways to bond with friends and family but it always pays off to be prepared for anything. Having a fully stocked first aid kit will greatly reduce the chance of delays or problems on the road. We here at Westpointe CDJR know what you need to have in your car’s first aid kit to be prepared for anything that could happen away from home.
Often left out because of its liquid form, hand sanitizer is essential to any first aid kit. It’s great for cleaning up cups and scrapes as well acting as a quick hand cleaning solution before meals. It never hurts to keep a small bottle stowed in the corner of your kit!
If you plan on traveling with anyone who’s on daily medication, ask them for spare bottle to keep in your first aid kit for the duration of the trip. Even if they forget it, there’s already some extra packed away in the car.
Gauze pads, adhesive bandages, and adhesive tape are must-have supplies in any first aid kit, let alone the one in your car. Check to ensure that all of your bandaging supplies are stocked up, especially if you plan on hiking, camping, or hitting the trails.
