October is Free Fall Baltimore! It features tons of free arts and culture events, right here in our own backyard. This is Economoms' first of a two-part series that aims to prepare you for the month-long celebration. We've sifted through all of the events and compiled our favorites. Today we feature recommendations for children. Stay tuned later this week for some "me time" activities that parents can take advantage of.

Chick with a Trick
This puppet performance tells a story about a Hen who lays a bonbon instead of an egg. In despair, Hen seeks advice and support from her friends the Duck, the Doctor and the King, but they are too obsessed by their own troubles to help. In the end, inspired by the beautiful sunny day and with help from the children, Hen learns a valuable lesson.  Presented by the Bulgarian troupe, Pro Rodopi Arts Centre, Saturday, Oct. 23 & Sunday, Oct. 24, both at 3 p.m. Free passes must be reserved by calling 410-752-8558.
