Still Spooky

Sheet ghosts, Paw Patrollers, and Batmen a-plenty will hit the streets at this year’s Stillwater Halloween Festival. Downtown Stillwater will transform into a trick-or-treating paradise with local businesses, restaurants, and organizations doling out goodies all evening long. Carnival games, food trucks, and live music will guarantee that festival-goers of all ages are treated. The night’s costume contest is also open to any attendee with a killer ensemble; there will even be a category for four-legged friends! Everyone is invited to take part in the ghoulish good time, but the sugary soirée will last for one night only. October 29. Admission, Free. stillwater.org

Boo-tiful Art

Enid’s Okie Craft Co. wants you to express your scary self this Halloween season. Haunt and Paint invites artists of all skill levels to try their hand at a luminous creation. Glow paints will be provided, and the subject for the evening is sure to be of a spooky variety. The instructor will be dressed for the occasion (in costume), so throw on your most festive garb; if you’re a sloppy painter, however, a fairly cheap costume choice is advisable. October 30. Tickets, $40. okiecraftco.com

Pull on your fishnets, boys and girls! It’s that Time Warp time of year once again. Norman’s oldest theater shows its wild side for the eighteenth annual showing of Rocky Horror Picture Show at the Sooner Theatre. A pre-show costume contest invites the audience to choose the best-dressed candidates for every character and the winners then perform as a live cast in front of the 1975 feature. Prop bags will be sold at the show for attendees seeking a Rocky Horror experience with all the bells and whistles, but the movie’s raunchy call and response tradition is free of charge. October 31. Tickets, $10. soonertheatre.org

The Living Dead

What better venue than Living Arts of Tulsa for the deceased to pay a visit to their surviving relatives? The annual Día de los Muertos Arts Festival on East Reconciliation Way in Tulsa is a chance to honor loved ones who have passed away. Though the festival honors the dead, the celebration will be lively as ever. The procession begins at the Guthrie Green, which will host live musical performances throughout the night. Food trucks, crafts, dancing, and drinking will keep the procession’s pulse thumping all the way to the decorated altars at Living Arts. This is one festival guaranteed to leave you feeling spirited—in more ways than one. November 1. Admission, Free. guthriegreen.com

Sugar skulls and folk art will be available for purchase at Tulsa's Dia de los Muertos Arts Festival.

Buona Notte

Okies craving a taste of Italian culture will soon have a proxy far more satisfying than a trip to Olive Garden. The Oklahoma City Philharmonic will present Italian Gems, a concert which will bring the works of legendary Italian composers to the Civic Center. Alexander Mickelthwate will conduct Respighi’s Fountains of Rome as well as selections from Verdi, Paganini, and several other exemplary Italian composers. The Philharmonic has enlisted the Canterbury Voices, Oklahoma City University’s chorus members, and violinist Benjamin Schmid to bring these Italian classics to life. Though this slice of Italy is sure to fill the ears, audience members might find themselves asking for seconds. November 2. Tickets, $19-$84. (405) 594-8300 or okcciviccenter.evenue.net

Mighty Mighty

R&B is one brick house that doesn’t crumble. Pioneers of popular music The Isley Brothers and The Commodores are bringing their funk/soul power to Shawnee’s FireLake Arena for a night of timeless hits. Both legendary acts have earned their place on the Billboard charts and in the Vocal Group Hall of Fame, but neither ensemble sees those accolades as any reason to rest. Watch these legends come together for a double feature that’s sure to make you “Shout.” November 2. Tickets, $39-$79. stubwire.com
