This show is just full of venom

If you're not a fan of snakes and other poisonous things, perhaps this isn't the place for you. But if you want to learn more, plan to be at the Tarpon Springs library on Oct. 22 at 7 p.m. for Venom 101. Joe Perez of Pinellas County Animal Services will present a slide show with live animals on the venomous reptiles of Pinellas County. All ages are welcome. For information or to register, call (727) 943-4922.

Book a ticket for 'A Passage to India'

Likely when you connect Tarpon Springs with another country only one comes to mind, but for a change of pace come to the library at 1 p.m. Oct. 23 as the Tarpon Springs Cinema Guild presents A Passage to India. The award-winning film, hosted by Sam and Cathy Tsoutsanis, is based on the modern classic novel by E. M. Forster about the complex relationship between the British colonials and the Indian people, over whom they ruled in the 1920s. It was directed by David Lean. Reservations are requested. For information call (727) 943-4922.


Here's a safe dose of Halloween horror

The city will offer "spooktacular" safe and fun-filled Halloween event from 5:30-10 p.m., Oct. 25 in Highlander Park, off Michigan Boulevard near the Highlander Pool. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the Dunedin for Youth Fund. Among the activities will be carnival games, a haunted house, a haunted hayride, pumpkin carving, and a costume contest for all ages.
