Holiday Events in Tulsa

One of my favorite things to do is to make a ‘seasonal bucket list’ for my family. December is a very busy month but I love to attend local events with my family! We might not get to the entire schedule of activities but it’s a great way to keep up with what’s going on in our fun town. Below is a list of exciting things happening around Tulsa and surrounding areas this Holiday season. I can’t wait to start crossing these fun events off of our Christmas bucket list! I hope that with this list you find out about some of the awesome events that are happening around Tulsa this 2014 Christmas season!

*It doesn’t just have to be the holiday season to volunteer your time or donate a toy. There is always someone/some organization in need of a helping hand. There are many more places and business in Oklahoma where you can donate items (food, toys, clothes, etc.) – if you need help finding them, let me know and I will help you find a bigger, more detailed list.

I realize this list is long and you certainly don’t have to do everything – this is {hopefully} just a helpful guide of the holiday events that are coming in the next few weeks! If you and your family do make it to some of these events, use the hashtag #momsoftulsa_holidayevents on Instagram so we, Moms of Tulsa girls can keep up with you! I hope you have a magical Christmas season with your loved ones!
