Sunday: Tulsa State Fair
It's the last day to enjoy the rides, food, music and everything else about the Tulsa State Fair.
So don't miss your chance to get on the Sky Ride, browse the wares on display at the QuikTrip Center and get your fill of corndogs, funnel cakes and other fried goodness.
Admission is $6-$10, free for children younger than 5. Hours are 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Monday: Pumpkin patches
If you haven't paid a visit to a pumpkin patch yet, it may be time to do so. Numerous patches are open throughout the month, several of them also featuring hayrides, corn mazes and other activities.
Consider Tulsa's Pumpkin Town, Sand Springs' Pleasant Valley Farms or Porter's Livesay Orchards.
