5 things to do under $5 Nov. 7-13

1 Hernando County Kennel Club All-Breed Dog Show: This American Kennel Club event for purebred dogs is held in the 50-acre Florida Classic Park and it's like pulling up a chair at Westminster. There will be dozens of booths with goodies for your dog available and it's a great place to learn about different breeds. The competition will have purebred dogs and also includes obedience and rally trials. Free admission, $5 parking, Florida Classic Park, 5360 Lockhart Road, Brooksville. It runs 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday. (352) 263-3775.

2 Archaeology Day: Channel your inner Indiana Jones. In conjunction with the Southeastern Archaeological Conference, this year in Tampa, the public is invited to this Archaeology Day program with historical re-enactors, artifact replication and displays of shell, stone, and ceramic artifacts made by Native Americans from Florida's past. It's free from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at Centennial Park, 1800 E Eighth Ave., Tampa.

3 Hayride and Star Gazing: Visitors will take a hayride more than 2 miles back into J.B. Starkey Wilderness Park to look through telescopes at the stars. Getting away from all that city "light pollution" makes star gazing extra vivid. It's free from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Saturday at the west Pasco park, 10500 Wilderness Park Blvd., New Port Richey.

4 Family Fun Day and Chili Cookoff: Cheer on your favorite chili competitor, then taste and vote for the best chili, or enter your favorite chili recipe to try for Chili King. There will also be home crafts such as buttermaking, old-fashioned games like sack races and horseshoes, hayrides ($1) and historic building tours. Donations appreciated, $5 wristband for chili tasting and judging. Free admission at the Pinellas Pioneer Settlement, 2900 31st St. S, St. Petersburg, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. (727) 893-7326.

5 Unclaimed Clothing Sale: Believe it or not, people often leave silk blouses, business suits and even comforters unclaimed at the dry cleaners. Sun Country Cleaners has a boatload of stuff that never got picked up and they are turning it into a fundraiser for PARC, which supports children and adults with developmental disabilities. You can buy freshly cleaned items for $5 each, including business suits, dresses, men's shirts, sweaters, skirts, ties, trousers from sizes XS through 4X and more at the PARC Thrift Store, 5825 66th St. N, St. Petersburg. It runs from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.
