We are 24 days away from Halloween, so I guess you could say it it is never too early to start planning what activities. With Halloween falling on a Sunday this year, there will be many activities on Saturday. But who says you can only celebrate that weekend. Between both Midland and Odessa there are events going on during the month of October that are free to the public.
