Are you looking for something more to do this Halloween than trick-or-treating and carving pumpkins? Oklahoma City turns into Spookytown this time of year, with fun and frights all over the city and surrounding areas. To make it easier, Beacon Homes assembled a list of 2018 Tulsa and OKC Halloween events to do with your family.
What’s frighteningly fun in Oklahoma City?
Frontier City Fright Fest, daily through October 28
Oklahoma City’s premier theme park is at it again. Daily monstertainment shows combine stunts, music, and ghoulish fun. Little goblins can take part in the Kiddie Land Candy Crawl on Saturdays. Then, catch the nightly Festival of Fright Parade and explore seven haunted attractions, like the Nightmare Haunted House, Carnival of Chaos, and Toymaker’s Terror Factory.
Haunt the Zoo for Halloween, October 27 & 28, 2018
The Oklahoma City Zoo presents its 35th annual Halloween event. Kids of all ages will enjoy the themed booths and jack-o-lantern displays. Follow the Haunt the Zoo trail and get your treats along the way.
Storybook Forest at Arcadia Lake, through October 28
This nightly event returns to Spring Creek Park in Edmond, where fairytales come to life from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Trick-or-treaters can wander through the park and collect candy from the characters. Listen to stories around a campfire where you and your family can toast marshmallows and warm up with hot chocolate.
Mustang Spooktacular Carnival and Festival, October 27
The City of Mustang will once again welcome people of all ages from 5 to 8 p.m. to celebrate Halloween at this event at Wild Horse Park. A haunted house, petting zoo, train rides, inflatables, more than 60 carnival games, and Booville (for kids under 5), and, of course, lots of food, will give you an evening of fun with your family.
Gypsy Glam Roadshow Fall Festival, October 27
For the third year, this free festival returns to OKC, at Tony’s Tree Plantation on South Post Road. Both kid- and dog-friendly, this fun fall festival has costume contests for all. Plus, trawl for treats, browse the booths, do some DIY crafts, decorate pumpkins, and feast on delicious food.
Halloween on the Green, October 27
All ages are welcome to walk the trick-or-treat trail at Will Rogers Gardens, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Costumed characters will be handing out goodies and kids can decorate sugar skulls and get their faces painted.
Magic Lantern, October 28
The Paseo Arts District invites you for “a night of light instead of fright”. Come as you are and the professional artists will transfer each of you with a one-of-a-kind costume, as you go from gallery to gallery to build a costume. Then, join in the parade on the labyrinth they’ve painted on the street. It’s free, it’s fun, and it’s certain to become a family tradition!
Tulsa trick-or-treat and more!
Halloween Festival at the Castle of Muskogee, Fridays and Saturdays through October 27
From the kid-friendly Halloweenland, Enchanted Boardwalk, and Halloween Train to the fear-inducing Labyrinth of Horror, you’ll experience Halloween in a whole new way.
Boo Ha Ha in Brookside, October 27
The Brookside District in Tulsa gets wild, weird, and wonderful for Halloween. The 28th year of Boo Ha Ha starts with a pancake breakfast, followed by fun in the kids zone, costume contests for children and pets, and finishes with a legendary parade!
HallowZOOeen, October 27-31
Every night, the Tulsa Zoo gets spooky (but not scary), and welcomes children to come in costume and collect treats at the Goblin Stops, play in the Pumpkin Patch Playroom, take a haunted train ride around the zoo, and experience themed activities at the Royal Castle and Pirate Island. This annual event raises money to support the zoo.
All of us at Beacon Homes encourage you to get out and explore the fun, safe activities around Oklahoma City and Tulsa through the rest of October.
