Psychic Hotline Presented by Quaill Club
Call for a psychic reading, artistic discussion, life advice or whatever else you want to talk about with Quaill Club’s queer witches. Readings will be performed primarily through Tarot, a centuries-old tradition using cards to answer questions or provide advice. Interested participants can call from the brand new, funky phone booth set up outside Quaill Club or from home in your jammies — like Miss Cleo, but free. Daily, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., through Jan. 1, Quaill Club, 1019 E. Costilla St., free, 434-1161.

SoCo Children’s Arts Festival
More than 500 children will take the stage (not all at once — the stage isn’t quite that big) to present dance, theater, music and more. Hands-on activities include an instrument “petting zoo,” interactive learning by the Pikes Peak Children’s Museum and face painting. Participate in the costume parade at 11:15 a.m. and go home with a free gift bag. Oct. 28, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Chapel Hills Mall, 1710 Briargate Blvd., free, facebook.com/ColoradoSpringsChildrensChorale.
