The annual sidewalk sale at Rose's Costumes is a must-see event for anyone gearing up for Halloween or hasn't yet seen this legendary wonderland! While you're there make sure to go inside and check out this Denton institution and all of the wonderful whimsy that it has to offer. Also, the restroom is worth a visit even if you don't have to go.

Game Changers Grand Opening | Game Changers | All Day
Have y'all checked out Game Changes (on Mulberry St.) yet? If not, now is your chance! Go grab a beer and kick some ass at pinball to impress your friends. People are impressed by pinball, right?
((secret show)) | 304 Springtree St | 7PM
The secrets out, y’all. Glorp Studios is announcing the lineup the day of the show and these guys are cool so we bet this will be, too. But don’t tell anyone because it is definitely a secret!
Sunday Sept. 11
Conspicuous Craft | Brick Haus Collective | 3PM
Make sure to check out this event put on by the Brick Haus Collective and the Greater Denton Arts Council featuring the work of Giovanni Valderas on Sunday. Valderas' work focuses on things such as family, identity and social implications expressed through "pinata-like billboards that mimic real estate signage."
HEARD End of Summer W/NB Potluck Picnic Meet & Greet | Ave A | 1PM
Bring a dish. Be HEARD. This is a great group of femme/non-binary/queer people in the area looking to put on some cool events in the near future and make sure that everyone has a voice. Can’t support this enough.
