Oktoberfest at Ten55. In a town full of breweries and a month full of beer, a Tucson Oktoberfest event has to be pretty special to stand out, and that’s exactly what Ten55 Brewing Company’s second annual Oktoberfest event is all about. All weekend long, Ten55 is serving classic German beer and food. There will be a costume contest, a beer-stein-holding competition and live music. The tap list is: Hefeweizen, Dunkleweisse, Helles, Zwickelbier, Dampfbier and a brand new Altbier for the occasion. And to top it all off, classic German Jagerschnitzel and Spaetzle. 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday, Oct. 4 through Sunday, Oct. 6. 110 E. Congress Street. Details.

Jean LeRoy’s Buzzard Creek Ghost Town. If you were around in Tucson in the ’80s and ’90s, you might remember the little dioramas featured in the Hidden Valley Inn restaurant in the Northeast part of town. Buzzard Creek was one of them. At first glance, it’s a cute lil’ western town, with a barbershop a saloon and a corner store. But at closer glance, you realize it’s full of gun-slinging ghouls, swaggering skeletons and other haunted characters. Fifteen structures handcrafted by woodcarver Jean LeRoy, including a mission church and a haunted mansion, will be featured at the Mini Time Machine Museum through November 3, to get you in the Halloween/Dia de Los Muertos spirit. Hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures, 4455 E. Camp Lowell Drive, $10.50 GA, $8.50 seniors/military, $7 students/youth 4 to 17, free for kids 3 and under. Details.

Oro Valley Monster Mash. He may have already done the mash, but for us, the mash is yet to come. Head up to Steam Pump Ranch for a day full of spooky fun, including pumpkin decorating, Halloween crafts, a cartoon-themed maze, a scary movie scavenger hunt and a DJ playing haunted tunes. New this year are the spooky carnival games, such as a candy corn ring toss and guessing the weight of pumpkins. Food trucks and witches brew (root beer) will fuel you through all the fun. This event is from 4 to 9 p.m., with haunted hayrides from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 4. Steam Pump Ranch, 10901 N. Oracle Road. Free, though some activities cost money. (Steam Pump Ranch is also offering Haunted Hayrides from 5 to 9 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays through Oct. 18. $10 for those 12 and up and $5 for kids 11 and under.) Details.

Haunted Ruins Rising: A Retro Experience. There’s always something sorta delightfully spooky about Valley of the Moon, where there may or may not be actual fairies. For October, they’re taking guests back in time to see a play that was originally performed in 1976. In it, a band of pilgrims journeys throughout the Haunted Ruins in search of the Golden Key to Happiness. Tickets to the show include access to an area of the park that was formerly closed to the public for decades. (We assume that’s where the fairies like to hide, so keep an eye out!) Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays throughout October, with several showtimes per night, from 6 to 8:20 p.m. on Fridays and 5 to 8:20 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Valley of the Moon, 2544 E. Allen Road. This Sunday, Oct. 6 is discount night! Bring a bag of candy or healthy treats and get $2.50 off. $10 adults, $5 kids 8 to 18, free for kids 7 and under. Details.

Tucson Film & Music Festival.
All this weekend, The Screening Room is home to the 15th annual celebration of all things Tucson: past, present and future. The festival features full-length, animated, documentary and short films. While there are too many to list here, a few of the feature films are: Cassidy Red, a female-driven Western about vengeance filmed entirely in Tucson; Everything Beautiful is Far Away, a futuristic fable about searching a desert planet for a mythical watering hole; To Be Funny, a world-premiere celebrating 100 years of Buster Keaton’s legacy; Zen Dog, about escaping the world with the power of lucid dreaming; and Casamance, a documentary about Spanish singer-songwriter and member of Tucson-based band Calexico Jairo Zavala seeking his roots. Friday, Oct. 4 to Sunday, Oct. 6. 127 E. Congress St. Details.

The Terminator. Arguably the most ’80s film of all time,
2_copy.jpg
what more is there to say about The Terminator? Arnold Schwarzenegger stars as a robotic killing machine in this James Cameron epic that ranges from sci-fi to action to psychological drama to straight-up horror. While it might not hold up as well as its sequel (sorry, Judgment Day is better) it’s an absolute classic, and no one can deny that. Remember how OJ Simpson was originally supposed to star as the killing machine? The Fox Theatre invites you to the “tech-noir” spectacular. 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 4. 17 W. Congress St. $5-$7. Details.

Selena.
Before the current age of constant music biopics, watching a film about a real-life musician going from nobody to star was almost a rare thing. This Golden Globe-nominated 1997 film stars Jennifer Lopez as Selena Quintanilla, rising the ranks from Texas girl to Tejano sensation to Astrodome-performing superstar before she was murdered by the president of her fan club at the age of 23. This breakout role from Lopez also helped solidify Selena as a music icon for audiences worldwide. Part of Hotel McCoy’s “movie under the stars” poolside screenings. 8 to 10 p.m. Friday, Oct. 4. 720 West Silverlake Road. Free. Details.

Saturday, Oct. 5

The flight includes three popcorns and three beers (including the Rylander). 10 percent of all proceeds will go to Troop #299. 3 to 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5. 7254 N. Oracle Rd. Details.

Boneyard Run.
Cheers to it finally being cool enough to run without having to get up at an unreasonable hour! To celebrate, October-style, why not head over to this run at Davis Monthan, through the world’s largest aircraft storage and preservation facility? You’ll be going right by the aircraft that make up the second-largest air fleet in the world (besides the U.S. Air Force), which is typically only open to employees. If you don’t think running or walking 5Ks and 10Ks is your thing, maybe you just haven’t found the right race for you. This spooky run through a Boneyard, with proceeds benefiting a moral, welfare and recreation fund for military men, women and their families on base, might be just your type of exercise. 8 to 11 a.m. (with registration starting at 5:30 a.m.) Saturday, Oct. 5.

Star Party at Catalina State Park. The night sky over the desert is always a sight to see, so just imagine how beautiful it must be through the lenses of up to 10 large telescopes provided by the Tucson Amateur Astronomy Association.

International Observe the Moon Night.
When fellow Tucson Weekly writer Jeff Gardner told me that you could fit all of the planets in our solar system in the space between Earth and the moon, I refused to believe him. NOTHING is that far away, let alone the big, beautiful orb we see in the sky every night. But he was right. The moon is so far away, but we’re lucky enough to get to see it all the time anyway. Head over to the UA Mall, where Flandrau is sponsoring a free public viewing event, complete with family-friendly moon activities and live music. 5 to 10 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5.

Evening of Play 2019. What better way to recharge your batteries than a night out without the kids? How about a night out without the kids where you get to be the kids? This annual fundraiser for the Tucson’s Children Museum doesn’t have speeches or a sit-down dinner, but it has plenty of opportunities to play and use your imagination.
