What to Do Today: Oct. 12

School's out today (grumble, grumble), so why not have some fun with the Columbus Day Children's Concert at 11am and 2pm today at the Dallas Arboretum. Children's favorite Eddie Coker will perform his selection of wacky songs that are sure to have kids of all ages singing and dancing. $9.50 adults; $8 seniors; $6 children ages 3-12; children younger than 3 free.

Have fun under the big top with the 67th-Annual Shrine Circus at 7pm today (and continuing through Oct. 17) at Fort Worth's Will Rogers Coliseum. You'll see elephants, aerialists, clowns and more, and best of all - the proceeds will benefit children's hospitals! $20-$15.

Get in an autumn state of mind at Pumpkins on the Prairie from 1-8pm today (and continuing daily through Oct. 31) at Frisco's Grace Avenue United Methodist Church. The playful pumpkin patch offers all kinds of family fun, like face painting, bounce houses and hay mazes. And, of course, you can pick a pumpkin of your very own to take home (there is a fee for pumpkins). Free.
