The Eighth Annual Boo on Broadway festival was a raging success Sunday afternoon in the downtown Triangle District. The event drew more than 3,000 participants for games, inflatables, costume contests, trunk-or-treats and more.
The event was hosted by the Sand Springs Ministerial Alliance for the second-straight year with involvement from several other local businesses and organizations.
State Farm agent Steve Lane and Farmer’s Insurance agents Kelly Smith and Nathan Spencer all set up booths with candy, as did American Heritage Bank, RibCrib, BancFirst, Christ Centered Lawn Care, and OSU Medical Center. Downtown businesses Blush Hair Salon, Coble’s Flowers, and Joni’s on the Triangle Hair Salon also participated.
New Life Tabernacle was the star of the show, taking over the entire Kingsley Insurance parking lot with numerous inflatables, balloons, popcorn, and a dunk tank. Reach Church set up a bounce house and several game stations. First Church of the Nazarene had a GaGa Ball arena, American Legion Post 17 and Chinowth and Cohen had corn hole toss, and Nexus Youth and HillSpring Church also had setups. The Sand Springs Police and Fire Departments also participated and let the kids check out the insides of their trucks and squad cars.
