TULSA, Oklahoma - We were there for an Oklahoma Moment in the Brady Arts District Thursday night, as hundreds of people from Green Country gathered to celebrate the Day of the Dead

It's the day that the deceased are honored and, for one month, are able to return to join the living.

One of the highlights of the event is at the Living Arts Center, where people were able to build alters for their loved ones.

This year marks the 18th year for the event in Tulsa, but it's a tradition that dates back nearly 3,000 years, to the Aztecs.
