Friday preview: Bainbridge edition

Here’s the Friday preview: Bainbridge edition for Oct. 26. Feel free to give your events a plug in the comment section below. Read the Sun’s regional Friday preview here. 

Weather: If you like rain with your clouds you’ll love this weekend’s weather. Rain is likely tonight through Sunday with temperatures in the low 50s, according to the National Weather Service.

Sports:  The Spartans are grinding into postseason and the football team was surprised to find itself in the playoff hunt. Bainbridge plays West Seattle at 5 p.m. Saturday at Memorial Stadium in Seattle for the seventh spot in the district playoffs. The swim team already boasts an impressive list of athletes qualified for state. See a full sports schedule here and follow the Sun’s PrepZone page on Facebook for playoff updates.

Around the island: 

  • Halloween is officially next Wednesday, but the weekend is packed full of spooky events nonetheless. For the second weekend, visitors can experience “Blackbeard’s Bilge,” a haunted event in the basement of the Battle Point Park Transmitter Building. The “Bilge” is open 7-10 p.m. Friday and Saturday and entry is $5 ($10 for a group of three). Consider this event PG-13 rated (not appropriate for young children).
  • Island Center Hall hosts a night of live storytelling beginning at 6:30 p.m. Saturday. The fright-level will rise through the evening beginning with stories for very young children and concluding with stories for teens, along with an open mic session. Tickets are $5 in advance or $10 at the door. Find full details here.
  • Bring a pumpkin and carving tools to IslandWood from 1-5 p.m. Sunday to craft Jack-o’-lanterns with the help of kitchen staff. Other HOWL-o-ween festival events will spice up the night. Costumes encouraged.
  • Pick up this week’s Islander for more event listings and tell us about your events in the comment section below.
