Whether the past 12 months have been great or somewhat disappointing for you, the year has come to an end. With 2019 getting closer and closer, how will you celebrate? Beacon Homes has some ideas for you to say “goodbye” to 2018 at the OKC and Tulsa New Year’s Eve events.
OKC Kids Stuff
Are you looking for family-friendly activities? Here are some ways to share the festivities with children.
Opening Night, Downtown OKC. This outdoor festival has something for everyone! Start early with the Finale 5K race, or just wander through the area to experience the diverse activities, which includes The Children’s Area in the Civic Center. Food trucks and live entertainment will be everywhere, and the event culminates with a spectacular fireworks display over Bicentennial Park.
Skate Galaxy, 5800 NW 36th Street, OKC. Roll into the New Year with an evening of roller skating from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m.
Devon Ice Rink at Myriad Botanical Gardens, OKC, and Edmond Outdoor Ice Rink, 1501 West Covell Road, Edmond. Take to the ice on New Year’s Eve for skating under the stars.
Illuminations: A Northern Lights Experience in the Crystal Bridge, Myriad Botanical Gardens, OKC. Here’s one more reason to head to downtown Oklahoma City for New Year’s Eve. This stunning light display is truly awe-inspiring for all ages.
Dave & Buster’s, 5501 North May Avenue, OKC. From 5 to 8 p.m., this early evening celebration includes all the fun you can find, with unlimited video game play, as well as a plentiful buffet.
Andy Alligator’s Fun Park, 3300 Marketplace Drive, Norman. Spend the day with the family, with go karts, bumper cars, mini golf, a climbing wall, and more. Finish up at 9 p.m. with the balloon drop—early enough to get the kids home and a different celebration!
Tulsa Kids Stuff

A home worth staying home for
Would you prefer to welcome 2019 from the comfort of your own home? You could spend a quiet evening after the rush of holiday events and think about all the great things that happened over the past 365 days, and plan for something new. Or maybe you’d like to entertain your family, friends, and neighbors to close out the year.
