Movies on the lawn returns to Turner House with a 7 p.m. screening of “ET the Extra Terrestrial.” The movie is free, and the Winnetka Heights Neighborhood Association will be selling snacks.

Blues, Bandits & BBQ is from noon-6 p.m. Saturday at Kidd Springs Park. The festival, which includes music from Somebody’s Darling, Bravo Max and the Cliff Blues Band, is free. Tickets to taste barbecue cost $20-$25. There will also be a pop-up dog park, courtesy of Elmwoolf.

Spookycross is a two-day cyclocross race that is part of Bike Friendly Oak Cliff’s Cyclesomatic. Saturday’s races are from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at Rosemont Elementary School. The Sunday races are from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. at Dallas Heritage Village. Cyclocross races can be fun for spectators because heckling the riders is encouraged. Also, there will be food trucks both days and beer the second day.
