Kiddies rule at Red Deer’s two major shopping centres on Saturday. Indoor Halloween festivities open with Fright Night at the Parkland Mall from 2 to 5 p.m. and wrap up with tricks and treats at the Bower Place Shopping Centre from 4 to 8 p.m. Participating stores and community groups have put together a full package of games and treats for children 12 and under.
For your listening pleasure, a 1940s-style radio variety show will be re-created by 36 musicians, actors, and singers at the Lacombe Memorial Centre next month. Be part of a live “studio” audience that will hear big band hits such as Stormy Weather, In the Mood, Java Jive and Blue Moon performed on Wednesday, Nov. 4, on the centre stage. All proceeds from the 7:30 p.m. show will go to support the Lacombe Arts Endowment Fund. Tickets are $10 from Sims Insurance, Sunny 94 Radio in Lacombe, or by calling Grant Harder at 403-350-9958 or Kim Berube 403-896-3332.
An Old Fashioned Band Concert will be performed on Thursday by the Red Deer College Symphonic Winds.

Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. concert at Red Deer College Arts Centre are $9 ($7 for RDC staff and students, $6 for seniors/children) from Ticketmaster.
