TULSA — According to officials with Brookside Business Association, the 29th Annual BooHaHa celebration will take place on Oct. 26. However, officials say, for the first time in its history, BooHaHa will not be hosting a parade down Peoria Avenue.

Officials say they will not be hosting the parade "because the cost of hosting the parade is becoming prohibitively expensive and because the impact to both residents and businesses is quite tremendous throughout the entirety of the day, the Brookside Business Association has decided to take the best parts of BooHaHa and focus on making the whole morning better than ever!"

There will be lots of fun activities for kids from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. down Brookside's historic Peoria Avenue.

Officials say, without closing down the street, they will be introducing "Entertainment Zones" showcasing many of Tulsa's unique clubs, businesses and specialty event groups.

Officials with the Brookside Business Association say that they will continue to encourage all of the Brookside businesses to give candy and prizes to the trick-or-treaters.

The celebrations will start at the south side near Myers-Duren Harley and end near 31st Street. Officials say there will be six Kids' Zones along Peoria that include inflatables, free candy, costume contests, face painting and many other fun activities that are free and safe.

The 'Kid's Zones' will be at the below locations:

  • Myers-Duren Harley
  • Brookside Collective
  • Brookside Library
  • Brookside Church
  • Southminster Presbyterian Church
  • City Veterinary Hospital
