Weekend Round-Up: Starry nights and spooky flights 

The best events in Charleston Oct. 18-20

It's Friday afternoon, and you've got no idea what to do this weekend. Oh, funny you should have that problem, since we're here to help. Check out our weekend round-up to over-plan your weekend. From zero to 60 (or 17), all in one post.

Friday Get into the spooky season with a stop at Halloween in the Swamp at Cypress Gardens. We've heard that some of the scare tactics occur on the boat ride across the swamp, as in real life swamp people are going to jump out at you. Maybe grab a pair of depends, just in case.

Want to go Halloween-lite? The Halsey's new exhibit explores hoodoo and will definitely get you thinking about your juju and spirits.

Good things come to those who wait, and maybe you want to wait to start celebrating the costumed day. If so, Lewis Black is in town to laugh your way into the weekend.

The College of Charleston is opening its observatory to the public. Now you can conclusively determine if you've been wishing on stars or planets all those years.

For some reason, we feel that Friday nights and Cuban culture go together perfectly. Maybe it's the mix of happiness with just a touch of spice. Good thing the Squire Fox opening at Mixson Bath and Racquet Club embodies our Friday feeling.

Celebrate streetwear and youth culture at the Big Mix event. Can't make the opening party at King Dusko tonight? No worries, there are events all weekend.

Saturday Saturday may as well be called dog day — or cat day, depending on your preference. There's Barktoberfest with fee-waived adoptions taking place. And then there's Dogtoberfest on Kiawah, which combines some of our favorite things beer and dogs.

Got a pet allergy? We've got other events to fill your time. Of course, there's the Southern Ground Music and Food fest at Blackbaud.

Loggerhead's Beach Grill serves up oysters and drink specials for Logtoberfest, benefiting Pet Helpers.

Take a drive to Edisto Island for its Fall Festival as booths take over Jungle Road at the annual event.

Iron Man or Aqua Man? Is that even a contest? Discuss your fave comic book heroes at the Take Flight Comic Book Show on Saturday.

Sunday Grab a PSL and head to the Fall Festival at Bishop Gadsen Retirement Home. They'll have music, food trucks, and even a pie eating contest — it's never too early to start stretching your stomach for Thanksgiving.

Stop by the Spice and Tea Exchange for your chance to meet James Beard winner Nathalie Dupree.

Spend Sunday evening with a new type of modern family — a modern dance family — at the Full Circle performance.

Or perhaps a songstress or two will ease your Sunday night blues? Lucky for you the Royal American has just that.

There's always Boone Hall's Fright Nights, too. Nothing like being chased by chainsaws or zombies to stop you from mourning the end of a weekend.
