Play Winslow

Weekend on the Rock: October 26-28, 2012

11:53 a.m.

Here are Inside Bainbridge recommendations for the weekend of October 26-28, 2012:

1. Fright Fest
When: Friday, 2-11 p.m.
Where: Bainbridge Public Library, 1270 Madison Ave. N
Why:

  • Chilling movies that get progressively scarier as the evening creeps on.
  • You get to wear costumes. Choose one that will hide your fear.
  • Crafts, treats, dinner.
  • It’s free!

2. Pumpkin Carving
When: Saturday, 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
Where: Masonic Temple, Grow and High School Road, 1299 Grow Avenue.
Why: The Cub Scouts are providing a place for all kids to gouge out their pumpkins and make a disgusting mess. Gouging tools and pumpkins (100 of them) provided. You get to drink coffee and do nothing! You don’t even have to clean up! And it’s free! (Why are they doing this?)

3. Lectures: Feathers by Thor Hanson
Feathers by Thor HansonWhen: Saturday, 4:30-6 p.m.
Where: The Bloedel Reserve, 7571 N.E. Dolphin Drive.
Why: One-hour lecture from a pro, biologist Thor Hanson, on the marvel that is the feather. Then ask Hanson your questions and get him to sign his book, aptly titled Feathers, for you. Maybe he’ll sign it with a quill.

Books are available for purchase. $15.

4. Spooky Storytelling Night 
When: Saturday, 6:30-7:15 p.m.: Preschool Stories; 7:30-8:30 p.m.: Elementary Jump Stories; 9-10:30 p.m.: Ghost Stories
Where: Island Center Hall 8395 Fletcher Bay Rd
Why: Storyteller Maria Potter frightens your children for you. You can join in—bring a scary story and share (10 mins. max.).

$10. $5 if you pre-register with BI Parks and Rec. Call Shannon at 842-2306 ext. 118, event #571804-01.

5. Spooky Creature Walk
When: Saturday, 7-9 p.m.
Where: Bloedel Reserve, 7571 N.E. Dolphin Drive.
Why: What a fantastically Halloweeny idea. Walk around Bloedel in the dark and meet the stereotypically creepy creatures. (You should hear what they say about us.) Owls, hawks, crows, and others will be there, dispersed around the grounds for you to meet and learn about. Naturalists will set the record straight.

$10.00 for Adults. Kids younger 13 are free.

6. The Crossroads of Faith & Sexuality: An Evening of Song and Story with Local Singer/Songwriter Lori Dreier and Poet Hillary Augustine
Lori Dreier When: Saturday, 7-8:30 p.m.
Where: Eagle Harbor Congregational Church, 105 Winslow Way West.
Why: On the eve of the election and the state’s decision on Ref. 74, come to a concert that sends a message of “hope, awareness, and healing to those who feel like outcasts.” Dreier plans to “explore the subtle and sometimes not-so-subtle ways exclusion takes place in our churches, schools, and society at large for those who may be considered the ‘other.’” Twenty percent of all ticket, CD, and art sales will go to International Justice Mission, a group that frees men, women, and children from forced labor and forced prostitution. Refreshments and tea follow the concert.

Tickets: $10 at www.brownpapertickets.com.

7. Island Theatre at the Library: The Weir
The WeirWhen: Saturday and Sunday, 7:30 p.m.
Where: Bainbridge Public Library, 1270 Madison Ave. N
Why: Perfect for Halloween, this is a play about ghost stories—Irish ones. By Conor McPherson.

8. Halloween Carnival & Bake Sale
When: Sunday, 12-4 p.m.
Where: Island Children’s Montessori School (ICMS) of Bainbridge Island, 9453 Coppertop Loop
Why: A good old-fashioned Halloween carnival with games, face painting (the kids can never get enough of that), and a bake sale. Wear a costume. Proceeds benefit ICMS.

$10 for wristband.

9. 8th Annual HOWL-o-ween
HOWL-o-weenWhen: Sunday, 1-5 p.m.
Where: IslandWood
Why: IslandWood’s kitchen staff who are master carvers will help you carve your pumpkin and make it scary stylin’. Bring your own pumpkin and carving tools. Other activities are included too, but exactly what is a mystery. Wear a costume.
