Sure, our annual parade is over. but don’t forget to celebrate halloween on thursday.
If you’ve gotten caught up in the hubbub or you just want to try out another costume for the big day, Party Galaxy has you covered.
This local all-things-party store has been a staple of festive shopping since 1937, when the company started in Oklahoma City as MG Novelty.
In 2001, it rebranded as Party Galaxy and expanded operations, which now include eight area locations and partygalaxy.com for ample scary costumes, candy for trick-or-treaters and decorations to spook kiddie guests.
While there, get started on other festive decorations. Party Galaxy doesn’t leave the metro high and dry after the jack-o’-lanterns begin to rot. This local mecca rolls right into the next season all year long.
It also stocks an array of supplies for birthdays, anniversaries, baby showers and weddings — you know, anything fun and worth celebrating.
