Chances are, you’re going to be doing a lot of walking this weekend. Whether you’ll be drinking along the way is up to you. If you’re more into a family-friendly stroll, the Museum Mile Weekend is for you. If you want to be stumbling by the end of it, there’s the Charleston Pub Crawl or the Pint of Hope Pub Crawl. You can also walk around and hunt ghosts, if you’d like.

And you should be walking, because walking is a sustainable activity, something you can learn more about at the Charleston Green Fair on Sunday.

And there’s also the Ballpark Festival of Beers if you think your liver can handle it.

The second Charleston Record Expo will give you another chance to track down that Bad Brains’ Pay to Cum 7 inch re-release after you see their show at the Music Farm on Friday night.

Corrine Jones Park is in my ‘hood. It’s a cute little place, and some of my neighbors are trying to raise money for its refurbishment at A Picnic in the Park.

When was the last time you flew a kite? Actually, I’ve never flown a kite? But I can at Kites for a Cure, a benefit for Uniting Against Lung Cancer. The Open House Party at Just Shoot Me Studios, featuring belly dancing, burlesque, music from Skye Paige, and more, will raise money for the VA hospital. And have a whole lot of fun at Hole Lot of Fun at Blackbeard’s Cove.

Pining away for this past New York Fashion Week? There’s two big-name fashion events in town this weekend: the Armani Collezioni Fall Trunk Show and the Billy Reid Fall Collection Runway Show. Plus Badd Kitty is hosting a Lingerie Party, which actually might not be that fashion related.

Steve Hazard will have an Eclectic Art Object Sale at his North Charleston studio.

Theatre 99 has Improv Smackdown, Blast Off?, Improv Riot, and This is Chucktown!

The last performance of South of Broadway’s Playfest is Saturday. The FTP Comedy Radio Hour and Glorious Gershwin are two more special theater events. And there’s also Educating Rita, A Streetcar Named Desire, Time Stands Still, and Topdog/Underdog.

Lisa Shimko, Lisa Abernathy, Sarah Boyts Yoder, and Hirona Matsuda present new work at To Catch a Sparrow or Net a Fox.

MOJA is right around the corner, and its juried art exhibition, with pieces selected by Jonathan Green, opens on Sunday.

The Greater Park Circle Film Society’s latest round of Lowcountry Indie Shorts looks pretty meaty. Then come by on Sunday for the free Community Cinema Series screening of Pray the Devil Back to Hell.

Clay Rice will be cutting away at his book signing at Blue Bicycle. Appointments are requested for silhouettes. And S.B. Newman signs his book at Local Coffee Bar.

Take trips to Capers Island and Bulls Island.

Kids 4-12 are invited to participate in the Huck Finn Fishing Festival. Now where’s the Tom Sawyer White Washing Festival?

Plus there’’s the Moonlight Mixer, Charleston Auto Expo, Charleston Pro Tennis League, and the ECCO Fundraiser.

And if you didn’t have enough to drink at any of the other alcohol-fueled events this weekend, there’s always Closed For Business’ Oktoberfest. It’s that time of year again, everyone.
