All treats, no trick

Halloween is right around the corner, and there is nothing we like better than some candy and costumes. If you aren’t in the mood to go door-to-door in your neighborhood, don’t sweat it. We’ve compiled a list of some family friendly haunts to enjoy. Of course, we can’t list everything. If you know about a cool Halloween event, list it in the comments below or hit us up on Twitter or Facebook.

  • Haunt the Zoo: Haunt the Zoo is an Oklahoma City favorite as it has been going strong for 30-plus years. This year the event will take place on October 21, 22, 28 and 29 and will feature candy, mascots and a Halloween trail through the Zoo.
  • Halloween Train: Tour the Oklahoma Railway Museum and take a spooky train ride October 28 and 29. Admission varies depending on age, but children under 3 are free.
  • Haunt the Harn: A little something for everyone: trick-or-treating, marshmallow roasting, hayrides, pumpkin bowling and much more. Children are $3 in advance and $5 at the door. Up to two adults may accompany a child for free. This year’s Haunt the Harn will be Oct. 26 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
  • Haunt Old Town Moore: On Oct. 28 from 4 to 7 p.m. the streets will be shut down for family-friendly fun. Everything you could ask for in one place: face painting, exotic animals, food trucks, live music and even clowns (hopefully not the scary kind).

Rocking the suburbs

House in Edmond

In Oklahoma City, living in the suburbs doesn’t mean that you are too far away from the action. The city’s large land area allows you plenty of options, while Oklahoma City’s low commute times make getting where you need to go a breeze. Oklahoma City has plenty of options for a suburban paradise in all directions from city center

Near Northwest OKC
Situated in the northwest quadrant of Oklahoma City near scenic Lake Hefner, the enduring popularity of these neighborhoods surprises no one. A variety of residences can be found, ranging from 30s-platted mansions to 50s-built ranch-style to 80s-developed subdivisions with larger footage. Close to shopping and recreation and sporting easy interstate access, this area is an enclave for those desiring suburban living without the commute. Subdivisions and cities include Nichols Hills, Lakeshore, Lansbrook, The Village, Warr Acres and more.

Northwest OKC/Edmond
Recent construction, a growing amount of retail offerings and larger homes are typically what you will find in this area. Some communities are gated and all offer outstanding neighborhood involvement. Good highway and turnpike access comes standard, as does excellent public schools. Subdivisions include Blue Stem, Warwick, Val Verde, Bocage, Summerfield, The Greens, Glen Eagles, Englewood Manor, Gaillardia, Oak Tree, Quail Creek, Silverhawk, Whitehall, Rose Creek, Oak Cliff Estates, Stone Creek Canyon, Highland Trails, Fairfax, Kingsbury Ridge, The Bluffs, Arbor Creek, La Sonata, The Grove South, Montague, Sonador, Heritage Oaks and many others.

South OKC/Moore/Norman
South Oklahoma City boasts more room, more new subdivisions, more new retail, more diversity, more value and more excitement than ever before. Similar to its counterparts in the northwest, newer construction and larger floorplans come standard, as do excellent public schools and interstate access. Subdivisions include Pepperwell Oaks, Rivendell, The Vineyard, Talavera, Brookhaven, Hallbrooke, Blue Creek, Classen Miller, Crossroads, Carrington Place, Summit Lakes, Eagles Cove, Lost Creek, The Willows, The Apples, Deerfield, Park Place, Eagle Cliff South and more.

Happy Birthday to You…

Guess who turns the big 2-3-9 this week? These United States of America, of course. Since firefighters across the country might frown on putting 239 candles on the cake, why don’t you let someone else do all the work and hit one of the many celebratory events all over the metro instead? On this week’s blog we will take a look at some of the best firework displays, festivals and parades you will find in OKC.

So grill a hotdog, grab an ice-cold beverage (something made in ’Merica) and enjoy the Fourth. No matter what corner of the OKC metro you live in we promise you there is a celebration nearby. Also, don't forget that personal fireworks are illegal in OKC proper, including sparklers, snakes and bottle rockets. (Don't say we didn't warn you.) Here are a few public fireworks displays for you to enjoy:

Know of any other communities nearby having Fourth of July bashes we missed? Let us know in the comments.
