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.

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!
