OKMULGEE, Oklahoma – The Muscogee (Creek) Nation Tourism and Recreation has partnered with the Okmulgee Main Street for Halloween this year.
MCN Tourism and Recreation Department Director Kyle Lee says they are happy to be a part of the celebration.
“We are happy to partner with Okmulgee Main Street to provide a safe alternative to their typical Scare ‘On’ the Square event,” Lee said. “This event will be a drive through event that will make it to where families can still have the Halloween experience in a safe way.”
Okmulgee Main Street is a non-profit organization that services the city of Okmulgee.
The annual event Scare “On” the Square normally takes place in downtown Okmulgee on the square that surrounds that MCN Council House.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there have been many changes to the event.
This year the event is being called Scare “Off” the Square and will take place at the MCN Claude Cox Omniplex on Oct. 30 from 5p.m. to 7p.m.
The event will be drive-through only. Families will enter the Omniplex in their vehicles and remain in their vehicles for the event. Each vehicle will drive through and receive candy from participating businesses.
According to Heather Sumner with Okmulgee Main Street, there are currently about 25 participating businesses.
This event is open to all community members and businesses, not limited to tribal citizens.
