Keep the kids entertained with amusement rides, roving entertainers and a glitter bar. Sunday, 10am-1pm. Stage 88.
2. Road trip for a cause
Show Braidwood some support this weekend at More than a Cul-de-sac. The event will take you on arts, crafts, antiques, food and fashion trails through the historic town.

4. Go green

Causeway Hall. Free event but people are asked to register at Eventbrite.
5. Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn

It follows her romantic pursuit of Ashley Wilkes (Leslie Howard), who is married to his cousin Melanie (Olivia de Havilland) and goes on to show O'Hara's subsequent marriage to Rhett Butler (Clark Gable).
