Get ready to make some noise, Tulsa! Led by many of Tulsa’s schools, museums, businesses, non-profit organizations, and parks, The Great Tulsa Howl and Holler – a Citywide Stay at Home Event – has been created as a way for the whole city to come together while remaining sheltered in place. On Friday, April 24, 2020 at 7 p.m., open your window, step onto a balcony or out in your yard and make some NOISE! Howl at the moon, scream, clap, bang pots and pans, make music, make yard signs or art, but most of all, give thanks and gratitude to all the frontline workers who are out there making things better for us all during this time.
“It's encouraging to see Tulsans come together during a time when the best way to help is by staying apart,” Up With Trees Program Director, Taylor Melone, said. “From our heartwood to yours, let's Howl and Holler for those on the frontlines!”
How does it work?
Step one: Wait for the clock to strike 7 o’clock on the evening of Friday, April 24, 2020
Step two: Open up your window or step into your yard
