5 THINGS: Horses, Markets and Dracula

Get out of the house before the workweek resumes!

Here are the (more than) Five Things for Sunday, October 21, 2012:

Horsing around is encouraged – ha ha ha! The Horse Play fall festival is at noon in Saunderstown.

Off to the market we go! There is a farmers’ market at Fisherman’s Memorial State Park at 9 a.m.

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.

Not to be confused with kingmaking. There will be a printmaking session at the South County Art Association Studio at 6 p.m. The cost is $10.

“Eddie discovered one of childhood’s great truths. Grownups are the real monsters, he thought.” – Stephen King, It. Here are today’s scary events:

  • Dracula is being shown at the Courthouse Center for the Arts at 2 p.m. The cost is $25.
  • The Haunted Courthouse takes over the Courthouse Center for the arts at 6 p.m. The cost is $10.

Oh no! Maybe there seriously aren’t that many events today, given that it’s Apple Day in the United Kingdom. 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!

Nobody sank their battleship. On this day in 1797, the U.S.S. Constitution was launched from Boston Harbor.

Blinded by the light, no doubt. Happy 71st birthday to Manfred Mann!
