5 Things to Do This Weekend (Oct. 24-26)

Five ways you can have fun this weekend:

1. The big movies opening this week are “Ouija,” a PG-13 horror movie about a ouija board; and “John Wick,” an R thriller starring Keanu Reeves as a hitman forced to come out of retirement.

2. Saturday is the beginning of International Magic Week, a time to celebrate magic and magicians. The special week was created to end on Oct. 31, which is Halloween, of course, but also the day that Harry Houdini died.

3. Saturday also is World Pasta Day, a holiday designed to celebrate pasta in all its delicious forms. Take part in the special day by making a special pasta dish at home, or by going to a restaurant for some good eats. And remember, pasta doesn’t just mean an Italian meal - you’ll find it in Asian dishes and others as well.

4. Halloween is next week Friday, making this the prime time to get to a haunted house. Check the newspaper for listings, or seek out some other spooky seasonal fun.

5. Can the Kansas City Royals pull off an improbable championship? Tune in to the World Series this weekend. Games are scheduled for Friday, Saturday and Sunday (if necessary). If you need more sports action, NASCAR’s Chase, NFL and college football, NHL, NBA, MLS soccer and more are taking place. Check your TV guide for more information.
