First up: Halloween Paint-In, organized by Lawrence Parks & Recreation.

Anyone wanting to paint a Halloween scene on a Massachusetts Street window — a family-friendly artistic vision, not vandal-minded graffiti — may submit a sketch to organizer Duane Peterson, who in turn can set you up with a glass canvas and all the wash-off paint you’ll need.

Approved participants can be anyone from the third grade and up, and each will receive a T-shirt. Painting commences from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday.

It’s a family-friendly event,” Peterson said."

Tabetha Faith, 9, Lawrence, paints herself into a pumpkin’s head Saturday as she draws a Halloween image on the window of Capitol Federal Bank at 1046 Vt. Tabetha was participating in the Halloween painting event sponsored by the Downtown Lawrence Association.
