The Flight of Fancy artist award reception is today at 4 p.m. at the Mesquite Fine Arts Gallery, 15 W. Mesquite Blvd.  The public is welcome to come meet the artists and view the many wonderful works of local residents.

Mesquite residents can come out to cheer on and support the Virgin Valley High School Bulldogs during their homecoming parade today at 6 p.m. The parade starts on Mesquite Boulevard at Arrowhead Lane and ends at the high school. A Community Pep Assembly will be held at the gymnasium at 7:30 p.m.

The best entertainment value for the weekend is definitely “Angel Street” a Victorian- era thriller.  Show-times are Friday and Saturday, 7 p.m.  and Sunday at 2 p.m.at the Mesquite Community Theatre, 150 N. Yucca St.  Tickets are $15.

You won’t want to miss Fright Night Wednesday, Oct. 28 at the Mesquite Fine Arts Gallery.  Paul Benedict sets the stage for a spooky reading of five of the most popular works from the legendary writer of the macabre, Edgar Allen Poe.

Benedict has been captivating the audience with stories from classic authors such as Mark Twain and O’Henry. He had the audience on the edge of their seats when he presented The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Now he’ll poetically scare you out of your gourd with The Raven, The Cask of Amontillado, Silence-a-Fable and the The Black Cat. He’ll really get your blood flowing with the Tell Tale Heart all in the good spirit of the Halloween season.

Gallery doors open at 5:30 p.m. with the Fright Night performance beginning promptly at 6 p.m. It’s free to the public.  Light refreshments will be served during a 15 minute intermission. Seating is limited to 55 guests; no advance reservations are accepted.

There is a lot going on and the calendar is getting quite large. Be sure to check it carefully so you won’t miss a thing that’s happening in Mesquite each week.  You can view the entire calendar online at www.mesquitelocalnews.com.
