Several groups are having Halloween events this year around Green Country. 

Here's a list of some events and their details: 

Tulsa Firefighters Tips & Treats

Tulsa Firefighters are hosting our annual Tips & Treats event tonight at the Tulsa Fire Department Safety Training Center, 2819 N. New Haven Ave. The event will begin at 4:30 pm and festivities will continue until 7:00 pm.

During the event first responders will be interacting with children about all things safety while offering a safe alternative to trick-or-treating. We understand the dangers that families face by allowing their children to walk the streets going door to door and hope to continue providing a safe environment for years to come. 

The event will offer a hay ride, spoke house, and plenty of goodies.  Tulsa Firefighters Local 176, Tulsa Police Department, Tulsa County Sheriff’s office, EMSA, and Joy in the Cause will all be participating in the event and plan to have apparatus from their departments for the kids to see.

Gathering Place Family-Friendly Halloween Event, Sponsored By US Cellular:

Gathering Place will host Sweets & Treats on Spooky Street, sponsored by US Cellular, Wednesday, Oct. 30 and Thursday, Oct. 31 from 6-9 p.m. at Chapman Adventure Playground.

Chapman Adventure Playground will be transformed into a Halloween spectacular for two nights full of free, family-friendly festivities with trick-or-treat candy stations, live entertainment and a monster mash dance party.

"Sweets & Treats on Spooky Street is going to be a family-friendly event with all of the Halloween favorites - free candy stations, music, entertainment and more," Tony More, Executive Director, Gathering Place, said. "We are so thankful for the support from our partners at US Cellular for helping us bring to the community what we know will become a tradition for Tulsans for years to come."

HallowZOOeen:

TULSA, Okla. (October 16, 2019) -Tulsa Zoo will transform into a spooky, but not too scary, trick-or-treat wonderland on Oct. 26-31 during HallowZOOeen. For 30 years this family friendly Tulsa tradition has raised funds to benefit zoo operations.

Ghosts and gila monsters will haunt the zoo for six nights, so you can start trick-or-treating early or make the zoo your Halloween evening destination.

Fill your bags with treats from Goblin Stops located all over the zoo from 6 to 9 p.m. on Oct. 28, 29, 30 and 31, with last tickets sold at 8:30 p.m. To allow more time for candy and costumes, the Tulsa Zoo will open one hour early on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 26 and 27, at 5 p.m.

HallowZOOeen 2019 will showcase treasured treats such as Burger King Royal Castle, QuikTrip Pirate Island and Insurica Pumpkin Patch Playroom.

Burger King Royal Castle summons all princesses (and prince charming types) for royal court activities like dancing with DJ Prince Charming, decorating dragon eggs, pulling the sword from the stone and befriending a roaring dragon.

Perhaps a sailor's life suits ye more? Then chart yer course for QuikTrip Pirate Island for a swashbuckling adventure with the QuikTrip pirates. Every buoy and ghoul will enjoy the one-of-a-kind pirate ship, where seaworthy sprouts can take the helm.

No fall festival is complete without pumpkins! Kids of all ages can enjoy a hay maze, pumpkin decorating, carnival games and prizes galore inside the Insurica Pumpkin Patch Playroom.

Stilt walkers will greet guests and lift spirits - then who are you going to call? The Ghostbusters to chase away those goosebumps. Be warned, brave souls, that a tour through the Haunted House can be a hair-raising experience.

Of course, the Tulsa Zoo hasn't forgotten about the candy. Sponsored Goblin Stops line the zoo to provide a safe trick-or-treating environment where guests can fill up goodie bags - and with more than 3 tons of candy, expect plenty of treats.

The Tulsa Zoo is helping green Halloween by purchasing sweets made with sustainable palm oil. Guests are encouraged to be eek-o-friendly and reduce waste by bringing their own trick-or-treat bag from home.

Buy tickets in advance to skip the lines. Tickets can be purchased online at tulsazoo.org/boo or at the Tulsa Zoo during regular business hours, daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Cost for admission is $9 for ages 1 and older; $8 for Tulsa Zoo members.

The Haunted Train is back with spooky (but not-too-scary) surprises around every turn for only $5. Children can take a spin on the Scary-Go-Round for only $1.

In addition to providing a safe trick-or-treating option, HallowZOOeen is an important fundraiser to help build a bigger, better zoo. HallowZOOeen 2019 would not be possible without our sponsors.
