TULSA — A Tulsa Halloween tradition will not take place due to the pandemic.
Tulsa's BooHaHa 2020 celebration is canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. According to the Brookside Business Association, BooHaHa 2020 is canceled due to the "severity and exponential growth of the COVID-19 pandemic."
For the past 30 years, the Tulsa tradition along Peoria Avenue brought both the young and old together for parades, costume contests, food and free candy.
This heritage of fun and community is something that we treasure, and we are deeply pained to have to make the decision to cancel it for this year.
Officials said they know, with Tulsa's spirit, the community will be able to conquer this virus and be ready for BooHaHa next fall.
"While we are saddened to have to cancel BooHaHa for 2020, we look forward to bringing back BooHaHa in 2021," said officials.
