Boo-tanical Trick-Or-Treating At Tulsa Botanic Garden Entertains, Educates Kids

Thursday, October 6th 2022, 9:29 pm


The Tulsa Botanic Garden is using its "Boo-tanical Trick-or-Treating" to both educate and entertain children.

There are several stations along the garden’s path where kids can stop, pick up a treat, and learn about nature.

It’s the first night of live music, light displays, and trick-or-treating at the Tulsa Botanic Garden. The Boo-tanical event is an interactive experience where you can enjoy nature and get some treats.

All of the fun is leaving kids unable to decide which part they enjoy the most.

Tara Rittler and her son try to visit during every event the garden puts on.

“This is a very unique event with the additional educational elements,” Rittler said.

There’s also termite racing and painting with maggots.

“They put paint on the paper and let the maggots just crawl all around it until you get a very unique work of art,” Rittler said.

“That’s something most people don’t have the chance to do. So, that gets the most response, probably,” Communications and Program Director, Lori Hutson said.

Hutson said the event is a great way to celebrate as a family while waiting for Halloween.

“This is a nice alternative. It’s not really geared on getting tons of candy or anything like that. It’s kind of more of the actual experience itself,” Hutson said.

The gardens also have a hay maze, pumpkin patch, and food.

Trick-or-treating begins at 5:30 p.m. and continues until 8 p.m. every Thursday until Halloween.
