In an event that began last Thursday and carries on until Friday, the Pony of the Americas Club National Congress is here in Tulsa. In total, Tulsa’s horse shows add about $80 million in economic revenue every year, which is something that Tulsa moving companies are excited about, hoping that it will move more people into Tulsa permanently. More specifically, the Pony of the Americas Club National Congress adds close to $1 million to the city’s economy on a yearly basis.

According to Ray Hoyt, vice president of Visit Tulsa and the Tulsa Sports Commission, “exhibitors descend on Tulsa from all over the nation, making the trip a vacation as well as attending the show.” The second year the Pony of the Americas organization held its annual congress in Tulsa, the show had drawn in over 3,000 entries and more than 300 ponies to Expo Square.

Joyse Banister, CEO of Pony of the Americas, shared that, “we make a major impact, not only with the facility at the fairgrounds but also in restaurants and hotels in the Tulsa community, who in return is very good back to us.” Since most exhibitors in the Pony of the Americas events are on the younger side, Banister believes that “it’s quite addictive and is a great organization to raise children in because they get to meet friends from all over the country.”

If you just recently had your local Tulsa movers drop you and your family off at your new home and you want to see what the local Tulsa horseback riding community is all about, the Pony of the Americas Club National Congress is a great way to do that – after all, it’s free!

Recently, the National Register of Historic Places has added new properties – including one 1925 Tulsa apartment. In fact, four Oklahoma properties have been added to the register, including the Elizabeth Manor apartment in Tulsa, the C.A. Comer House in Dewey, the Hays-Kennedy/Rivoli Theater in downtown Blackwell and the Czech Hall of Oklahoma City.

In order for a property to be added to the National Register of Historic Places, a property must meet the National Register Criteria for Evaluation. This includes analyzing the property’s age, integrity and significance. A property must be at least 50 years old in order to even be considered historic, and it must look similar to how it did in the past. Along with that, the property in question must have been important relative to events that happened in the past, or associated with the lives of people who were important in the past.

Described as Late Gothic Revival/Collegiate Gothic-style structure, the Elizabeth Manor is a three-story building near Veterans Park. According to the Tulsa Preservation Commission, “Elizabeth Manor is an excellent representation of the apartment house construction boom in Tulsa during the 1920s.”

Nonetheless, those history buffs planning on using Tulsa movers to relocate to Oklahoma in the near future have much reason to celebrate. Not only does being listed on the National Register provide recognition, but it also offers protection that will help preserve the building from potentially being destroyed in order to build new buildings on top of it.

One of Tulsa’s premier art, sports and entertainment venues, BOK Center, has hosted some of Tulsa’s premier events since 2008. This 19,199 seat stadium hosts major concerts, family shows, other world class entertainment, along with the WNBA Tulsa Shock and the CHL Tulsa Oilers games.

Not only is the BOK Center a fantastic place to get to know the city better after Tulsa movers finish moving in you and your family, but it has endless amounts of events that will keep your family entertained all summer long. This Tulsa center even has fun events that the whole family can participate in, which will help your kids make new friends in their new home.

One of the events that the entire family can participate in, includes Dodge Brawl. This one-day dodge ball tournament allows teams to play for a charity/non-profit of their choice – the winning team’s charity receives a financial donation on behalf of the tournament.

Moreover, there are other summer events that Tulsa movers have been recommending to the families for after they get settled in. On top of the multiple sports events, there are music events such as Fall Out Boy on July 22nd and Air1 Positive Hits Tour on September 3rd. If your family is feeling particularly adventurous, then make sure to check out Wingapalooza 2015 on August 8th. This one-of-a-kind event features 25 Tulsa-area restaurants that showcase their wing preparation style. We bet you won’t be able to find an event like that anywhere else!

A two-day, non-profit music and arts festival in downtown Tulsa, the Center of the Universe Festival features more than 100 bands throughout numerous outdoor stages and club venues. Aside from fantastic live music, you will also be able to enjoy a local street market, rows of food trucks, and the countless amounts of bars that line the street of the festival.

The event has grown to be such a staple of the city throughout the past couple of years that Tulsa movers recommend that one of the first things that new residents should do is to check out the annual Center of the Universe Festival. The best part about the festival? It is completely non-profit, so all of the proceeds from the tickets will go back towards the city. A portion of the festival proceeds goes towards the Tulsa Public Schools’ music program and to the trolly service.

Even co-founders Phil Kaiser and Chris Lieberman are volunteers. Lieberman shares that “unless it’s a production crew, everybody is a volunteer. Phil and I, all 30 people who work on this year-round, they’re all volunteers. We’re volunteering to do this because we know it’s important to Tulsa’s music scene.” Performers include Panic! At the Disco, Three Days Grace, American Authors, Kongos, Minus the Bear and Misterwives.

Needless to say, the Center of the Universe Festival is the perfect activity to take your whole family to once your local Tulsa movers have finished moving you and your whole family into your new home.

If you are moving your family to Tulsa, Oklahoma this summer, Tulsa movers have a great summer idea for your children to allow them to have fun in their new city – enroll them in summer camps! Enrolling your children in a summer camp in Tulsa will help them make friends and adjust to their new surroundings before the school year begins. Try sending them to a summer camp that offers activities they like or can relate to. They will also be more likely to bond friendships with kids whom they have common interests with, who are in the same upcoming grade.

YMCA of Greater Tulsa

This summer camp offers three different day camps and one overnight camp. At any of the three day camps, kids will have the opportunity to swim, play team sports, learn how to fish, practice archery and go on field trips. Overnight campers get to experience outdoor activities that span the YMCA’s 420-acre site.

Brain Balance Achievement Center

This brain-based program helps kids ages 4-17, reach their potential academically, socially and behaviorally. If you are moving to Tulsa and you believe your child has a neurobehavioral issue, Brain Balance Achievement Center will use cognitive training, nutritional guidance, and sensory motor exercises to address it.

Camp Raven at Riverfield Country Day School

Once your Tulsa movers have settled you into your new home, think about sending your kids to Camp Raven, where they have the opportunity to explore 120-acres of wooded terrain. This camp hosts activities; such as: hiking, cooking, rock climbing, river rafting, song writing and sports.

Brook Fine Arts Musical Theatre

If your child is interested in music and theater, send them to this camp! They will have the chance to learn singing, acting and dancing from professional instructors and put on a show for their parents and loved ones at camp’s end.

Have you recently moved to Tulsa and are wondering what flowers to plant to ramp up your curb-appeal? Check out this list of flowers that are easy to grow in the environmental conditions of Tulsa that will make the outside of your home look beautiful.

  1. Irises – Although they do not bloom for long, irises will have a charming effect on your home when they do. Their stems are tall and their vibrant petals are slightly ruffled at the edges.
  2. Roses – Many may think roses can be difficult, but they can actually do very well in Tulsa’s climate. Try a smaller-sized rose collection and place it on the outer portions of your garden, so that they don’t get lost behind anything that blooms larger.

  4. Garden Phlox – If you are looking for something with smaller, more abundant bulbs, try planting garden phlox. This flower is known to tolerate all kinds of Tulsa, Oklahoma weather.
  5. Sunflowers – Once you have moved to Tulsa, plant these beauties as seeds and watch their stems grow tall and their flowers shine bright. They are not named sunflowers for nothing!

Tulsa movers wish you good luck in planting your first garden at your new home!

If you have had a previous roach or bug infestation problem in your home, make sure you follow the following steps to ensure that you experience a bug free move to Tulsa. It is safe to say that you probably don’t want any unsuspected visitors coming into your new home and making your move to Tulsa unpleasant.

  1. Wash all clothes before packing them- clothes that have sat in drawers for a long period time are places that can easily hide bugs. If you don’t have time to wash everything, make sure you are inspecting each piece of clothing before putting it in a moving box.
  2. Inspect all furniture – If a piece of furniture has cushions, make sure you remove them and check all angles. Bugs are likely to seek refuge in tight spaces like the cushion cracks of a couch.
  3. Carefully look over appliances – Roaches and bugs alike, hide out in electronics and appliances that can’t be opened. It’s probably best you get rid of such items before you move to Tulsa.
  4. Leave behind any plants that lived indoors- If you have previously experienced a roach or bug infestation, leave potted indoor plants in the past. Bugs hide in warm dirt and may reappear in your new Tulsa home.
  5. Use new moving boxes from your Tulsa moving company – New boxes are easy to inspect and will not be infected with anything. They also signify a clean, fresh start before you even move out of your old home.

East Tulsa is a lovely place to call home, but it has not had much retail development in the past thirty years. Sure, a store or two will pop up from time to time, but retail development has not kept up with residential development and our town’s population increase. But your Tulsa moving company recently learned that a large developer, Horizon Group Properties, proposed plans for a huge shopping outlet in East Tulsa. Woo hoo! The proposed name for the center is the Outlet Shoppes at Tulsa.

The proposal detailed a 400,000-square-foot, 95 store retail outlet that could potentially be ready by 2017. The retail outlet would bring in plenty of big-named stores, more eating options, and even additional offices and hotels. It would also create about 1,200 permanent jobs; which is great for the residents of East Tulsa. Horizon often partners with big brands and stores like: Coach, Ralph Lauren, and Michael Kors. The development company’s plans also include a summer concert series and a farmers market.

The proposed lot is at 129th East Avenue, at Interstate 44. The lot is thought to be perfect for such an outlet mall. It is right next to the highway and exit, and the land is solid for building. Because of this, other developers are also making proposals for an outlet mall.

If you are moving to Tulsa, you should definitely keep up with the development of this potential retail outlet; it will bring convenience and entertainment to your new home town!

If you are new to Tulsa, you should know that this town loves its beer, and Marshall Brewing Company is proof. The Tulsa-based brewing company has been around for decades and has grown increasingly popular in recent years. To answer the craft beer demand in Tulsa, Marshall Brewing Company created Arrowhead Pale Ale. This seasonal ale is only available during the summer months, so if you are new to town, now is the time to try this much-anticipated beverage! Your Tulsa movers know you will be glad you did!

Arrowhead Pale Ale is typically available from Memorial Day to Labor Day, and will hit liquor stores and bars across Tulsa on Thursday, May 21st. If you have not tried the popular brew yet, it is a light pale ale with a hoppy flavor that includes a hint of citrus, and is 5.2 percent alcohol. To celebrate the release of the summer ale, Marshall Brewing Company is throwing an official launch party on May 29, at James E. McNellie’s South City, a popular Tulsa public house.

Arrowhead Pale Ale will replace Marshall’s spring brew, Revival Red Ale. It will be replaced by the brewing company’s Oktoberfest Lager in late August or early September. Make sure to try this seasonal favorite. It is really popular with the locals, and for good reason! It will be the perfect complement to all of the barbecue you grill up this summer. Buy a few six-packs and invite the neighbors for a good time, Tulsa-style!
