Several events planned for New Year's Eve
TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) —
We're still a few days away, but many places are getting ready for the New Year's Eve celebrations.
"This room gets incredibly packed," said Angie DeVore-Green.
But the IDL Ballroom in downtown Tulsa is already looking like New Year's Eve.
"We provide complimentary masks for everyone," DeVore-Green said.
Looking for a party with Mardi Gras flair? This is it.
"Made with the company that makes them in New Orleans for Carnivale and for Mardi Gras and all that, so they're official Mardi Gras masks," DeVore-Green said.
If you're looking for something outdoorsy…
"We're going to have a lot of fun," said Dionicia McCallum of the Flying Tee, where folks will be teeing up festivities. "We keep the temperature control, in fact, we've just added all new walkway heaters as well, so not only is the bay heated but your time from the bay back inside back and forth is warm as well," she said.
And just across the river, "We have live music all over the place," said Jerry Floyd, General Manager of Casino Operations at River Spirit Casino, where they will be celebrating the new year hourly. "Starting at 12 o'clock on New Year's Eve up until midnight, every hour, on the hour, we'll be having drawings for $2,018 in cash," he said.
The resort was recently named the number one destination of Uber riders in the state, and New Year's Eve, they'll have plenty of Ubers available.
"They've promised they'll have vehicles here all night long. We'll have a separate lane by our valet lane right here at the resort entry," Floyd said.
