VERNON - From film festivals to masquerade balls, there’s something up everyone’s alley this weekend.

- The REEL Change SustainAbility Film Festivals is presenting a series of documentary films focusing on social, cultural, environmental and economic issues Friday at 7 p.m. and all day Saturday at the Schubert Centre.

- O’Keefe Ranch welcomes one and all to its corn maze where the twisted souls at the Okanagan Science Centre and the ranch have partnered up for a spook-tacular event. For the brave, lose yourself (and your mind) in a maze of terror during Field of Screams. There have been reports of terrifying things rustling through the corn as night falls… will the next path you choose lead you to safety, or something far more sinister? Field of Screams admission is $8 + GST. Check it out at 6 p.m. this Friday and Saturday.

- Friday night will feature Vernon’s first “Avant-Garde Masquerade Ball”, hosted by Kip Jon Productions. Local artists of different genres will be partnered with models as live canvases. The artists will be using body paints and natural element pieces to create living statues. These statues will then be displayed throughout the evening for people to see and enjoy. The event will benefit Vernon Search and Rescue. Starts at 8 p.m. at an undisclosed location. Tickets available  at 104 Grey Clothing, Reflections Hair & Esthetics Studio, and Furmaneks Jewellers. For further information regarding this event, contact Kip Jon at 250-307-8604 or visit the facebook event page at An Avant-Garde Masqerade Ball. Tickets are $50.

- Head to the Vernon Jazz Club for a lake monsters ball Friday night at 8 p.m. The eleven-piece Legendary Lake Monsters are back by popular demand. They will again fill the stage with instruments and vocalists and the room with dynamic horn sounds.

- Caravan Farm Theatre in Armstrong is presenting its 10th annual Walk of Terror: Vampyre. There will be a special outdoor screening of the German cult vampire flick Nosferatu, and a live concert. Gates open at 6:30 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $18 in advance and $22 at the gate. There are prizes for best costume, so come dressed up.

- On Sunday, there’s a women’s trade show at the Prestige Hotel. Check out make-up, health, fitness and clothing booths. 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
