1. Party for the planet

Ridgefield gets a head start on Earth Day with its First Saturday event, an Earth Day Rally from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 6 in Overlook Park, South Main Avenue and Pioneer Street. Enjoy kids crafts, a scavenger hunt, family painting lessons, a seed packet giveaway and recycled art. Shop local at the farmers market, browse among the vendors, stock up on summer reading at a pop-up book sale and sip a cardamom lavender latte while buying fresh herbs at the Old Liberty Theater’s Herb Day. Finally, you can unwind in the Windy Hills Wine Garden, which opens at 11 a.m. ridgefieldwa.us

2. Encore, encore!

The groundbreaking independent film “Neither Wolf Nor Dog” will get an encore at the Kiggins Theatre, 1011 Main St., Vancouver, at 6:30 p.m. April 7. The film — director Steven Lewis Simpson’s adaptation of Kent Nerburn’s best-selling novel — was popular during its initial 2017 run at the Kiggins, where it out-grossed 11 of the 12 summer blockbusters playing in town. The film takes audiences on a road trip through Lakota life and culture with memorable characters that inspire a different view of the world. Tickets are $7 in advance or $10 on the day of the show. www.kigginstheatre.com

3. The music of the night

At 3 p.m. on April 7, the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra’s Chamber Music Series presents the original 1925 silent film adaptation of “The Phantom of the Opera,” starring Lon Chaney. Vancouver’s art deco-era Kiggins Theatre, 1011 Main St., is the perfect backdrop for this classic film, the story of an opera house haunted by a mysterious masked figure who falls in love with a star singer. The VSO Chamber Ensemble will accompany the film with Rodney Sauer’s original compositions. Tickets are $25 or $10 for students; beer, wine and concessions are available to buy in the lobby. 360-735-7278 or vancouversymphony.org

4. Enjoy a day out

Indulge yourself with two days of female-powered fun at the Vancouver Women’s Show, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. April 6 and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 7 at the Clark County Event Center at the Fairgrounds, 17402 N.E. Delfel Road, Ridgefield. Enjoy shopping from vendors, fashion shows, live entertainment, beauty and well-being resources and demonstrations, food, jewelry, goodie bags and giveaways. Advance tickets are $8 (available online at womensshow.org) or $10 at the door, and parking is free. womensshow.org

5. It’s all fun and games

Celebrate the arrival of spring with an evening of fun and games from 5 to 8 p.m. April 5 in downtown Camas, along Northeast Fourth Avenue.
