As the leaves begin to change and the air takes on a crisp, invigorating quality, it's clear that fall has arrived in the heart of Oklahoma. This season brings with it a delightful array of events and activities in and around Oklahoma City and the surrounding areas. From family-friendly festivals to arts and cultural celebrations, there's something for everyone to enjoy. Since Halloween isn't on a weekend this year, the age old question of "When do we Trick or Treat" is circling social media. Most towns will trick or treat on 10/31/2023 since it is Halloween, if you're not up for school night shenanigans, there are plenty of trick or treating events the weekend before! Here are just some of the most anticipated Fall events to mark on your calendar:
