WARWICK, RI — Coming Warwick Weekend events include a previously rained out Spooky Fest, two trunk or treats and a fundraiser brunch to fight breast cancer among the usual autumnal antics.

Warwick Weekend weather is  a big step up from Sunday, with some clouds and temps in the 70s Friday and Saturday, thankfully, with only a 30 percent chance of showers Sunday, according to the National Weather Service. Here are some fall/Halloween events happening throughout the week:

Pawtuxet Village Scarecrow Contest Community groups, youth groups/schools, libraries and creative individuals are invited to participate in the scarecrow contest by adopting one of the historic light poles on Main Street Pawtuxet Village (Broad Street) and creating a scarecrow for display. The contest runs through Oct. 31.

★ You must register with us to participate via our website. If you set up a Scarecrow without signing up, you may be taking someone else’s spot who has already registered.
★ To be eligible for votes, all Scarecrow entries must be completed and displayed outside and attached to the historic lanterns/light poles, in front of businesses, or onto park signs on Broad Street (not on the wood poles or trees or they will be taken down by National Grid)
★ Local groups, individuals, anyone can enter — this is not only for Village Businesses.
Roger Williams Park Zoo Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular The Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular at the Roger Williams Park Zoo is back this year nightly through Oct. 31. This year’s event is sponsored by Citizens and takes you through the greatest music of the last 150 years while enjoying the thousands of intricately carved pumpkins on display. All tickets must be purchased online. The trail is open 6-10:30 p.m. (the last entry is 10 p.m.) Roger Williams Park Zoo, 1000 Elmwood Ave., Providence.
