The 97th Annual Easter Pageant "Prince of Peace" returns to the Holy City of the Wichitas on Sunday, April 9th and Sunday, April 16th (04-09-22 & 04-16-22). It's the longest-running Easter Pagent "Passion Play" in the U.S. and it's right here in the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge just minutes away from Lawton, Fort Sill.
I knew the pageant has been around for a long, long time but I had no idea it's been going on now for 97 years and counting. I've never had the opportunity to go so I'm hoping this will be the year. Everyone I've talked to who has been to the play says it's an amazing and unforgettable experience. Hit play on the video below to learn a little bit more about the Holy City of the Wichitas and the Annual Easter Pageant.
It's been a while, but I love going out to the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge and to the Holy City. If you've never been now would be the best time to visit. The Holy City is not only home to the Nation's longest-running Easter Pageant it's also a popular wedding site with the World Chapel. It's an amazing place to visit.
It's a great place to visit with tons of history and unique features like all the buildings which look ancient and biblical, it's like stepping back in time. There's also an Oklahoma City bombing memorial and a Veterans Walkway at the Holy City. Not to mention the beautiful view!
