Free Screening of Paddington 2

The RiverRun International Film Festival is offering a free screening of the film Paddington 2 on Saturday, October 23. The screening is sponsored by Salem Smiles Orthodontics and will take place at Marketplace Drive-In at 2095 Peters Creek Parkway. Parking spaces for the screening will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Gates open at 6:30 p.m., and the screening begins at 7 p.m.

The film tells the story of Paddington Bear, who is happily settled with the Brown family in Windsor Garden and is a popular member of the community. Paddington spreads happiness and marmalade wherever he goes. While searching for the perfect present for his beloved Aunt Lucy’s 100th birthday, Paddington finds the perfect pop-up book in Mr. Gruber’s antique shop and takes on a series of odd jobs to buy it. But when the book is stolen, it’s up to Paddington and the Browns to uncover the thief.


Trunk-or-Treat Events

If you are looking for an alternative to trick-or-treating in your neighborhood, why not visit a local Trunk-or-Treat? Most of these events are free and open to the public. Children can trick-or-treat in a safe setting and there are options offered all month long!

We have compiled a list on our October Fall Festivals & Trunk-or-Treats directory. This list also includes family Fall Festivals in and around the Triad area. We update our list daily with new events as we hear of them. If you have an event to add, click here and we will add it to our directory and our community event calendar.
