Terra Luna is a magical journey through the moonlit gardens of the Overland Park Arboretum & Botanical Gardens. This multimedia installation by Quixotic captivates guests with a light and sound experience featuring live music and aerial acrobatics Sept. 14-16 and 21-23.

The Overland Park Fall Festival, in downtown Overland Park Sept. 29-30, offers an artisan fair, entertainment, activities and mouth-watering food trucks. It’s the perfect way to welcome the arrival of fall with your loved ones.

Art enthusiasts will be delighted by the Stems Plein Air Exhibit presented by the Rice Gallery of Fine Art and Friends of Overland Park Arts on display now through Oct. 3 at Tomahawk Ridge Community Center.

Pumpkin Hollow, running Oct. 1-31 at Deanna Rose Children’s Farmstead, is a highlight of the season.
