  1. Designate a Driver: If you plan to indulge in libations during your festivities, be sure to designate a sober driver or use a ride-sharing service like Uber or Lyft. Let's keep our streets safe for everyone. Also, remember that many events are 21+ and will require a valid ID. 
  2. Bags and Re-entry: Be sure to check the venue's bag and re-entry policies as rules may apply.
  3. Mind the Costume: While elaborate costumes are a Halloween tradition, ensure they don't impede your movement or vision. Comfort and safety should always come first! 
  4. Look Out for Each Other: Finally, Halloween is a time to come together and enjoy the company of friends and family. Look out for one another and ensure everyone has a great time safely. 

    Let's embrace the Halloween spirit and make memorable adventures . From all of us at Downtown Tulsa Partnership, we wish you a spooky and safe Halloween in Downtown Tulsa. May your night be filled with treats, not tricks! See you there, partygoers!
