Weekend Round-Up: King Street smarts 

The best events in Charleston, Oct. 8-10

Our Halloween round-up from last week still applies, plus there’s a Confederate Ghost Walk this weekend, and a Halloween Extravaganza at St. Paul’s Academy.

You know what Halloween really means? That Christmas is right around the corner, at least to the chain stores and the advertising companies. Get a head start on decorating and gift buying at the Holiday Craft Show. And Holy City Artists and Fleas would be a great place to pick up something unique.

And what better gift to get than a book? Especially a used one. It’s like a vintage Ipad or Kindle. Stock up at the BIG Book Sale.

Edgar Allan Poe: Back from the Grave is a spooky theatrical performance held in the passageways of Fort Moultrie. Since it’s not necessarily kid-appropriate, treat them to some poetic frights at The Gold Bug the night before.

The 34th Annual Fall Tours of Homes and Gardens continues.

Taste of Charleston features an Iron Chef competition, a Taste of the Arts walk on Gallery Row, and the main event at Boone Hall.

Freshfields Village hosts a Fall Festival as well as the American Music Celebration, while Archaeological Society of South Carolina hosts a Fall Field Day.

Take back the streets at the Second Sunday on King. Feel free to stand in the middle of the King-Market intersection just for the heck of it.

Klash and dash at KK6.

Unearthed, featuring the work of four local female artists, opens at Rick Rhodes Photography Studio.

Say namaste to all the flexible people participating at the Yoga Marathon in Marion Square.

Mt. Pleasant Hospital has its Trot for Tots, and the TrekWoman Breast Cancer Awareness Ride happens on Saturday.

Come over to the Dock Side for the second annual fashion show.

Money issues be damned, the Charleston Symphony Orchestra hosts their Gala 75th Anniversary Concert.

Lowcountry Exposure is presenting a two-day Fashion and Natural Beauty Seminar at the North Charleston Convetion Center.

It’s your last chance to see Bookzilla at the Gaillard. We swear he’s not as threatening as he sounds.

Rachel Ashwell will sign copies Interiors, while poet Bret Waller will have a reading in McClellanville.

In theater, you’ve got AWOL: A Soldier’s Journey, The Duncan Storm, The Lion in Winter, The Marvelous Wonderettes, Visiting Mr. Green, and Cinderella for the kids.

Find out what’s happening to the bees at Vanishing of the Bees.

If you’re wondering why your unfixed cat or dog is hiding from you this weekend, it’s because the largest spay/neuter event in South Carolina is happening for residents of Hollywood, Ravenel, and Meggett.

Chamber Music Charleston’s The Adventures of Toad for Brass Quintet will be like Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride for your ears.

What happens when the teddy bears have their picnic? You’ll find out at Hampton Park on Sunday.

It’s a great weekend for comedy for both the local and national scene. Not only will we get visits from the Upright Citizens Brigade Touring Company and Jeff Dunham (and his puppets), but Theatre 99 has Comedy Combat, the second round of the Charleston Comedy Festival Stand-Up Competition, and Improv Riot.

Be charitable at the Help Ron Not Die Bikini Bike and Car Wash, the Artists Helping Artists Black Tie Benefit, the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office Escorted Ride, the Kayak Poker Run Fundraiser, the Paws in the Park, and the Smoking Pigs for Kids Barbecue.

And the second installment of the Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers is Mississippi Damned, and it’s go Walt from Lost in it! Geek out! More importantly, it’s about the lives of three poor, black youths in Mississippi. Writer/Director Tina Mabry will be on hand for a Q&A after the screening.
