Best Bets for Saturday and Sunday, March 29 and 30

Looking for something to do this weekend? Here are The Salem News' Best Bets:

Saturday, March 29 

Bring a smock and old clothes and paint with everything but a brush during a celebration of creativity at 11 a.m. at Hamilton-Wenham Public Library, 14 Union St., Hamilton. Hear inspiring stories then cut loose with individuals to create an artwork to take home and contribute to a larger, cooperative artwork that stays in the Children’s Room throughout April. This free program is suitable for children ages 2 and older.

Putnam Pantry Candies, a homemade candy and ice cream store, will host an ice cream social to benefit the Colleen Ritzer Memorial Fund from noon to 4 p.m. at the shop, 225 Newbury St., Danvers. One hundred percent of the profits from the event go directly to the scholarship fund. In addition to the ice cream social, proceeds from the Putnam Pantry Danvers Strong chocolate coins will also be donated to the fund.

Celebrate local art, and maybe even take some home, at the Artrageous!28 Auction Party, which starts at 6 p.m., at Shetland Park, 27 Congress St., Salem. Montserrat’s accomplished students create artwork live; bid on more than 200 pieces of art donated by members of the community and other renowned and emerging artists; and enjoy food and libations while supporting financial aid for deserving student artists. The featured artist artist of the evening is Steve Locke, and guests will enjoy music by The Dejas. For more information, email, call 978-921-4242, ext. 1114, or visit the auction website.

Sunday, March 30

Start the day off with an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast, from 8 to 11:30 a.m. at Vittori-Rocci Post No. 56, 143 Brimbal Ave., Beverly. Menu includes sausage, ham, scrambled eggs, baked beans, applesauce, juice, coffee and tea. Donations, $4/adult, $3/child, support North Beverly Elementary PTO and the Veteran’s Aid Fund. For more information, call 978-927-2103.
