Paint Your Punkin’

Unlike the jack-o'-lanterns on the porch, this variety of pumpkin-centric art is built to last forever. Yaymaker’s Paint Nite: Pumpkins Galore invites any fans of fall produce to paint the pumpkins of their dreams—or nightmares—on canvas. Artist Susan Tucker will guide the 2-hour painting session at Oklahoma City's Guyutes, making for an evening that tickles palettes and palates alike. October 7. Tickets, $35. (405) 479-1185 or yaymaker.com

Jenny Dreamed of Cain’s

Red Bull and Hennessy seems like a rather disappointing cocktail, but the free-wheeling croon of Jenny Lewis can make anything sound delectable. Cain’s Ballroom will host the red-headed powerhouse when her On the Line tour stops in Tulsa. For a supremely catchy and spectacular time, get the Cain’s box office on the line as soon as possible. October 9. Tickets, $27-$42. cainsballroom.com

Back on the Payne Gang

Stillwater’s music scene is really shaping up—thanks in no small part to events like the Payne County Revival. Local legends Giakob Lee and Isaac McClung will take to the Iron Monk Taproom for a night of songs and beers that are both beautifully crafted. Both artists are notorious for imparting songs that stick with listeners even after the buzz has faded. October 10. Admission, Free. visitstillwater.org

A Walk to Remember

While the frights provided by most haunted houses are a flash in the pan, the Downtown Norman Ghost Tour provides a spooky journey for those craving a slow-cooked scare. The walking tour surveys Norman’s neighborhood ghosts and chilling history; attendees might even catch a glimpse of the phantom barber who hasn’t taken a day off work since he died. Take the tour, even if only to tell that barber to demand a raise. Tickets are sold at the start of the event. October 11. Tickets, $10. allevents.in

Wassup, Owasso?

Summer fun may be over, but the annual Owasso Harvest Festival proves that autumn is no second-rate season. Live music, live animals, and fried food are the makings of any good gathering, but this year’s Harvest Festival ups the ante with balloon art, face painting, and carnival games. The afternoon’s main attractions include the pet festival in support of the Owasso Animal Shelter and the much-anticipated Owasso Sings competition. October 12. Admission, Free. (918) 376-1529 or cityofowasso.com

Dance to Live

An exciting variety of gourd is soon to sprout at Lawton’s Hilton Garden Inn. The Gourd Dance is just one of the highlights of this year’s Celebrating Survivance: Indigenous Peoples’ Day. The all-day celebration will feature songs, supper, and an array of arts and crafts, but the historic Round Dance is one attraction guaranteed to keep attendees around until the very end. October 13. Admission, Free. facebook.com

The OKC Live Tattoo Expo brings needle artists from across the country to Oklahoma for an inky good time.

Tatt’s All, Folks

It appears there were “no regerts” after the last OKC Live Tattoo Expo, because the inky extravaganza is back to take another stab at Midwest City. Skilled tattoo artists from across the nation will make some lasting memories anywhere customers like. Can’t decide on a design? Try the “Hole in the Wall” feature and let an artist ink your arm or leg any way they choose—so long as the mystery tattoos aren’t tacky or inappropriate, of course. October 11-13. Tickets, $10-$25. eventbrite.com
