This week: Mix things up before Thanksgiving arrives. Test the gray matter, have some fun, see where it takes you — to the movies, the stage, outside … or shopping.
Teton Gravity Research’s ‘Roadless’
7 p.m. Friday, Snowy Owl Theater, Icicle Creek Center for the Arts, 7409 Icicle Road, Leavenworth, $7-$15, 548-6347
Bryan Iguchi and fellow snowboarders Jeremy Jones and Travis Rice explore an untamed part of Wyoming on a 10-day human powered expedition. Their goal? Groundbreaking first descents deep in the Yellowstone wilderness. Their journey yields world-class riding and allows the three to reflect on their shared past and love of snowboarding in one of America’s last wild places. Show up early to the screening to enjoy refreshments and enter a raffle for prizes from the sponsors — Mission Ridge, Lithic Skis, Cascade Powder Guides, Arlberg Sports, Northwest Mountain School and Icicle Brewing Co. Proceeds benefit ICCA.
Winter is Coming costume competition
2-7 p.m. Saturday, Wine Cellar, 217 Ninth St., Leavenworth, 888-7777, waterfromwine.org
Here’s a chance to put your imagination to work — come up with a costume representing anything you associate with winter … anything … whether you acknowledge the nod to Game of Thrones — or not. Put yourself out there to be judged, win a prize, and, in the process, help Upper Valley Mend. Two catches. You have to be willing to have your picture posted on Instagram and Facebook, where the judging takes place. And the entry fee is a donation of three new or gently used coats, blankets or other cold-weather items. Donate five items and get a special prize.
WVC catapult contest
2-4 p.m. Friday, Wenatchee Valley College, 1300 Fifth St., Wenatchee, firstname.lastname@example.org
Wenatchee Valley College students put their physics know-how to the test to create catapults and then see how far they can fling stuff. A must-see. The event is put together by WVC physics professor Bruce Unger.
‘Love Anyway’ screening, discussion

This 30-minute film, narrated by Kristen Bell, tells the story of a family who moved to a war zone and learned what happens when people choose to “love anyway.” All are welcome — war scenes might be disturbing for children under the age of 10.
