September has finally whisked itself away and October is here!

Get ready for the first First Friday Art Walk of autumn in the Santa Fe Art District at 5:30 p.m.

Be sure to check out the rooftop gardens in Larimer Square before the brisk, chilly weather chips away at the greenery.

Feeling the spirit of Halloween slowly creep into you? Paint some sugar skulls at Grandma’s House Brewery or adventure to Grim Rising for a festive and what looks to be a thrilling interactive circus production.

Remember to shake off the spirits of the season with some good vibes with upcoming shows featuring Bastille and Injury Reserve.

Oh, and the Avalanche are back. The good kind, not the scary kind.
