This time of year, you never know if you'll be spending time outdoors with the kids or staying in because of cold weather. You're in luck — both types of activities are featured this week. Catch a free movie in Wake Forest, explore nature at the Prairie Ridge Ecostation in Raleigh, watch a show with fancy feathered friends in Carrboro and explore a park to see what creatures are out after dark in Raleigh.
The Wake Forest Renaissance Centre for the Arts hosts free family-friendly movies rated G or PG the second Monday of each month at 10:30 a.m., and this Nov. 13 is no exception. The title of the movie hasn't been publicized, but it will be appropriate for kids of all ages. If you absolutely must find out ahead of time, call 919-435-9428 to find out. Typical movie concessions like popcorn and drinks will be available for sale. No tickets or preregistration are necessary.
