Things To Do on Bainbridge Island This Week – October 7-13

Another Monday begins, and that means another round-up of great Things To Do on Bainbridge Island this week! Bainbridge Islanders are justly proud of our small community’s BIG output of visual and performing arts, and this week’s events can help explain why. From a classic film showing and discussion on Wednesday to an arts lecture, photo workshop and the Bainbridge Performing Arts’ version of ‘Shrek, the Musical’ later in the week, there’s a lot of art happening on Bainbridge Island this week! In order to take it all in, why not spend a few nights on our lovely isle?
