Weekend Round-Up: Head start on Halloween 

The best events in Charleston, Oct. 1-3

There’s still 30 painstaking days before the best one of the year, Halloween. If you’re impatient, a bunch of places have already gotten in the spirit (or have gotten haunted by spirits). Boone Hall has their pumpkin patch during the day and Fright Night after dark, Legare Farms has a maze and pumpkin patch, and the aquarium has become Scary’um.

Our round-up for Friday’s art walk can be found here. Also, Salon Couture has their own art show, plus a Sweeteeth chocolate sampling.

This is the weekend for cultural celebrations. Not only does MOJA continue, but there’s also the Latin American Festival, a Polish Celebration, and Ole: A Festival in Old Spain.

Now’s your chance to be creepy: the 34th Annual Fall Tours of Homes and Gardens and the Garden for Gardeners Tour let you take a look at all those properties you’ve always wondered about.

This weekend’s theater offerings include AWOL: A Soldier’s Journey, The Lion in Winter, The Marvelous Wonderettes, The Philadelphia Story, and Tintypes. For dance, you can choose from Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Company, Fred Astaire Fall Showcase Spectacular, and Amor Al Flamenco.

It’s never too early to start the holiday shopping, like at the Fall Craft Fair and Gift Market or the Mom to Mom Thrift Sale.

Open Dome Productions makes their grand debut at the Pour House. Learn more about this portable planetarium here.

Theatre 99 hosts the Theatre 99 Improv Jam, Doppelganger!, and Improv Riot. Anjeluh Johnson will also perform at the Sottile.

The 5 Browns are basically the Jonas Brothers of the classical music world — except with girls. See them Saturday night. And Chamber Music Charleston has their Black Tie Gala.

The Gibbes will present Faces, a concert inspired one of their new exhibits. Susan Lenz will host a lecture about her show, Personal Grounds, at the City Gallery at Waterfront Park. And since her name is Susan, you're pretty much guaranteed that she'll be insightful, witty, and thought-provoking.

Give your child some costume inspiration at Creative Spark’s Cinderella performance or at the Safety Expo, where they can meet firefighters, police officer, and other aspirational members of the community.

The last Outdoor Movie at the Mt. Pleasant Pier is Rudy. Cairo Station is a classic political Egyptian film.

Do some good this weekend at Crawl for the Cure, A Night on the Red Carpet, the Palmetto Palace Gala, the PINK Pajama Kick-Off Party, Special Day for a Special Cause, To Broadway and Back: A Party for the Arts, and IOP Connector Run and Walk for the Child.

Take a picnic to Hyde Park’s polo match.

Widespread Panic performs at Patriots Point ... nope, at the Ladson fairgrounds ... nope at the North Charleston Coliseum. Yep. That’s where they’ll be.

My ultimate Boyz II Men pairing would be the R&B group with Mariah Carey, but I guess Patti Labelle is a close runner up. They close out MOJA.

We rounded-up weekend foodie events over here.

Catch some wrastling (deliberate mispelling there) when TNA iMPACT takes over Daniel Island.
