Special event: NoDaWeen

When: Sat., Oct. 29 2011

NoDa is still a kick-ass neighborhood, even if some of its most prominent art galleries have closed. To celebrate Halloween, the annual NoDaWeen features four events: KiDaWeen, a child-friendly fest with apples-bobbing, face-painting, storytelling, a costume contest and a screening of Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were Rabbit; Freaky 5K Twilight Race, an evening run with prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for fastest male and female runners and best costume; Dinner and a Movie, with Halloween-inspired trivia, dinner served from Mac's Speed Shop and a screening of the 1976 horror flick Carrie ('70s prom attire is encouraged); and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, a midnight movie showing with prop bags. All proceeds benefit the NoDa Neighborhood Association - a nonprofit promoting the arts, supporting local businesses/charities - so in addition to some fun, you'll also be helping the 'hood continue to thrive. KiDaWeen: begins at 2 p.m. Freaky 5K Twilight Race: $20-$25 to enter. Registration at 5 p.m. and the race starts at 6 p.m. Dinner and a Movie: $5 for film screening; $6 for dinner (optional). Trivia starts at 7 p.m. and the movie starts at 8:30 p.m. The Rocky Horror Picture Show: $7 movie ticket; $5 prop bags (optional). Doors open at 11 p.m. and the screening begins at 12 p.m. For more information, visit www.nodaween.com.
