COVID-Aware Birthday Party in OKC

Many things in our worlds have changed over the past 12 months, but one thing has not: a mama’s love for her babies. Celebrating our kiddos’ birthdays may have gotten more challenging, but there are still ways to make your little one feel special on his or her birthday! Birthday drive-by parades will still be a thing for awhile, but if you’re running short on ideas as the pandemic drags on, we’ve got you covered! From local businesses that help decorate your yard to virtual character visits, OKC doesn’t disappoint. And if you’re looking for venue options that have COVID precautions in place, the venues below have shared their COVID safety plans. Did we miss your favorite? Let us know in the comments!
