Warwick, RI — Hay rides in Pawtuxet, art in Apponaug, and live performance on Jefferson Boulevard make for a busy week in Warwick events.

Here’s what’s on the schedule, inside and out.

Can’t Miss: Hay rides in Pawtuxet

It’s one of those great autumn traditions: the hay ride. The Pawtuxet Farmer’s Market at Rhodes-on-the-Pawtuxet hosts rides every half-hour from 9:30 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Oct. 4, with the last ride at 11:30.

Purchase advance tickets [$5 for ages 16+, $3 for ages 4-15, free for kids under 4; $15 family packages also available] at Twice Told Tales, 2145 Broad St. in Cranston, or make sure you get to the market early to ensure a seat.

While you’re there, load up your canvas bags with locally grown produce and other items, and wear your rain slicker — there’s a chance of rain on Saturday, according to the Weather Channel.

Thursday, Oct. 2, 2014:

My Fair Lady at OST, 2 p.m.

“Fa” is a long, long way to run — but it doesn’t take that long to find Ocean State Theatre [just off Main Avenue on Jefferson Boulevard] to catch My Fair Lady.

Performances continue Thursday at 2 and 7:30 p.m., and Wednesdays through Sundays until Oct. 19. Tix are $39/$49/$54.

28th Annual Rhode Island Open Juried Exhibit at WMOA, 10 a.m.

Warwick Museum of Art welcomes Ernest Jolicoeur, director of the Dorrance H. Hamilton Gallery at Salve Regina University, to review and rate original works by local artists as part of a new exhibit.

The Museum is open to visitors from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday. Through Oct. 25.

Tuesday, Oct. 7:

Civil War Series at Warwick Public Library, 7 p.m.
