Here are the (more than) Five Things for Saturday, October 13, 2012:
Fall festival! Yes, you read that right! The South Kingstonw Parks and Recreation Department hosts its annual Children’s Fall Fest at 1 p.m. at Old Mountain Field.
Dosey doe, maybe? Some English country dancing will be held at 7:30 p.m. at the South Kingstown Land Trust Barn.
“BOO!” – A ghost. Check out the Haunts of Little Rest Hill with the Pettaquamscutt Historical Society at 7:30 p.m. or 9:30 p.m. for $15. At the Courthouse Center for The Arts at 8 p.m. will be Dracula.
He still makes Bryant Gumbel look like Malcolm X. Comedian Wayne Brady performs at the Ryan Center at 8 p.m., as part of URI’s family weekend.
Work on your backhand, your serve, your smashing at the net… There is drop-in tennis at the courts at Broad Rock Middle School starting at 9 a.m. The cost is just $3.
Oh no! Maybe there seriously aren’t that many events today, given that it’s International Day for Natural Disaster Reduction. As a result, our events calendar for today is a bit barren. If you’re having an event, please let us know in the comments. Also, make sure it isn’t left out in the future – Submit it via this link (as long as you’re logged into your Patch account).
Sign up for our daily newsletter! Hey, I realize we have a lot of neat features and knick-knacks on the site, so it can be confusing to keep up with it all. Want just one simple, easy to read daily digest? Sign up for our e-mail newsletter here then. It comes out between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. roughly, every single day of the week. Amazing, I know!
Oh, how jolly! On this day in 1958, Paddington Bear made his debut. The first stuffed bear of him came out in 1972.
One of New England’s sweethearts. Happy 42nd birthday to Nancy Kerrigan!
