3 things to do this week

Cecil Whig - - ACCENT -

Wear some­thing gaudy To­day’s the day to break out your most daz­zling, wack­i­est, wildest out­fit. Mon­day, Oct. 17 is Wear Some­thing Gaudy Day.

Ac­cord­ing to Mer­riam-Web­ster, “gaudy” is an ad­jec­tive that means “marked by ex­trav­a­gance or some­times taste­less showi­ness.” That means frills. That means se­quins. That means painfully bright col­ors. Not only do you have an ex­cuse to aban­don all con­ven­tional fash­ion sen­si­bil­i­ties; you have an obli­ga­tion. Have fun.

Eat some soup for a good cause On Thurs­day (Oct. 20), the Rotary Club of North East will hold its 5th an­nual Soup Cook-Off char­ity event at the VFW Post 6027 in North East. Par­tic­i­pants will have the op­por­tu­nity to taste and vote for a num­ber of soups from lo­cal restau­rants.

Tick­ets cost $10 at the door; chil­dren un­der 10 eat free. Three Cecil County food bank or­ga­ni­za­tions will ben­e­fit from the pro­ceeds: The St. Mary Anne’s Epis­co­pal Church Out­reach, The Ray of Hope Food Pantry and Ni­canor, Inc.

Spook your­self on a ghost walk Ch­e­sa­peake City is host­ing its 20th an­nual ghost walk se­ries on Fri­day and Satur­day, with tours leav­ing from town hall ev­ery 15 min­utes from 6 to 9 p.m. For the 10th year, lo­cal writer Michael Collins has scripted and will pro­duce the event.

It’s not ex­actly clear what scare tac­tics will be em­ployed in this year’s ver­sion, but these fam­ily-friendly walks have fea­tured zom­bie pi­rates, gi­ant chick­ens from space and re­an­i­mated mur­der­ous mum­mies in the past.

Tick­ets pur­chased at the door $12 for adults and $8 for chil­dren. In ad­vance, it’s $10 for adults and $5 for chil­dren. Call 410-885-2415.
