Christmas Activities in Tulsa

Utica Square

Rhema Lights Extravaganza

The Nutcracker

The Oklahoma Aquarium

  • On the days leading up to Christmas (19th -24th) the Oklahoma Aquarium has an event called “Scuba Diving Santa Claus.” Every day at 3:30 is a chance to take a picture with Santa while he is under water! How cool would that be on a Christmas card?!



Christmas brings family and friends together; it helps us appreciate the love in our lives we can often take for granted. May the true meaning of the holiday season fill your heart and home with many blessings.

Serving Our City, Food Drives in Tulsa

This holiday season there is a lot we can do to help those in need in the Tulsa, Ok area.  Among the different types of charities there are a number of food drives that need our help so they can provide food for the less fortunate.  There are so many different opportunities to give back to our community and giving the people who need our help most is one of the best ways to do so.  This season there is an abundance of business’s who are helping to make those in need a little less hungry.  Sprouts, The Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma, and many more are participating in some kind of way to make this happen.


Sprouts is giving us the opportunity to participate in their annual Grab ‘n Give holiday food drive.  This event allows us to shop around the store and donate bags of groceries for a 10% discount.  They then take the bags and give them to the local food bank.  This is just such a great way to give back.  You are already going to be at the store and all you have to do is pick up a few extra items to donate.  It’s that easy, but for more information, click the link:

The Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma

The Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma is a food bank that is always looking for support all year round, but during this holiday season would love any extra support they can get.  They provide over 335,000 extra meals to people who are hungry in Oklahoma each week.  Isn’t that amazing?! During this season, every dollar you donate, the company will match it with two dollars more! Also, The Food Bank is hosting a Turkey Day Run! So come on out and help The Food Bank fight hunger on Thanksgiving! For more information about donating or the Turkey Run, click the link:

1 in 6 people in Oklahoma suffer from hunger.  During this Holiday Season it is important that we let our giving spirits known by doing what we can for people in need.  These are great opportunities to show your care for people, but there is so much more we can do!  There are over 20 places in the Tulsa area where you can find a place to donate food or other needed items.  There is so much we can do to make sure that those who are on the streets or are just in need of a good meal have all they need over the holidays.  It doesn’t take much to make people happy.  This quote by Mario Batali says a lot, “Unlike curing cancer or heart disease, we already know how to beat hunger: food.”

Needless to say, this holiday season, make sure you reach out and help those who are in need in our community.

Fun Halloween Events


Halloween is in less than a week and we could not be more excited! There are many great aspects that come along with this fabulous holiday and many have to do with celebrating and candy. This year we are going to give you a couple non-traditional activities you and your family can as well as one very traditional event that everybody loves! I know that a lot of people think of Halloween as a holiday for spooky creatures and haunted houses, but that’s not all we found when putting together a list of fun things to do. The three great events I think you and your family will really enjoy this Holiday season are HallowZOOeen at the Tulsa Zoo, HallowMarine at the Oklahoma Aquarium, and finally, old fashioned Trick or Treating right in your own neighborhood!


HallowZOOeen is a family friendly event that takes place at the Tulsa Zoo. This great event is a weeklong event that started Monday the 27th and ends Friday the 31st. The fun starts at 6:30 and ends at 8:30, with tickets that only cost $8. Come join the family fun with activities that include The Haunted Train and The Cross-eyed Carousel (Those are additional fees). All of these tickets are available to be purchased online. This Halloween activity is a great way to spend time with your family and feel comfortable in a safe location. For more information about HallowZOOeen click this link:


HallowMarine is a wonderful Halloween event that takes place at the Oklahoma Aquarium in Jenks. This event also started on Monday the 27th and ends on Friday the 31st. The Aquarium will be closing at 6 from the general public and will open again at 6:30 for the Trick or Treaters. The Aquarium will close from all of the Halloween fun at 9pm. Tickets to enter the HallowMarine event very with age so make sure to check it out on the website.

There is no doubt about it that this is going to be a spooktacular event. For more information about HallowMarine click this link:

Trick or Treating

Trick or treating is among many of the Halloween traditions that originated quite some time ago. For children, now days, it’s the best part of this Holiday. The kids get to dress up in whatever they want, stay up late, and accumulate buckets and buckets of candy. Some might consider it to be the best time of the year!
