Ever wanted to meet a cow? Realize your dream at Family Day at the Farm with the Shatto Milk Company (9406 N. Highway 33, Osborn, Missouri).

Find some Jack-O-Lantern inspiration at Faulkner’s Ranch (10600 Raytown Road). Pumpkin season starts Sunday, and Faulkner’s will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. with a zipline, pumpkin spice donuts, a field maze and animals on the farm.

The next class ($40) is 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday.

After 16 years in the River Market, Café Al Dente (412 Delaware St., Suite D) is closing this Saturday, as its lease will not be renewed. Snag a slice of their garlic or garlic cheese bread, which they sell by the slice.

Get back to your childhood with a screening of Goonies. The city of Fairway, Kansas, is hosting the outdoor showing of the kid caper flick at the Shawnee Indian Mission Kansas Historical Site (3403 N. 53rd Terr., Kansas City, Kansas).
