There’s a lot going on at NorthPark Center on Saturday, so I’m going to list the events below:

The Park Cities Rotary Club is hosting a blood drive from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. It will happen on the second level of the mall, near the AMC 15.

Mademoiselle Sonia will present a French storytime, at 10:30 a.m. at Bookmarks.

The Disney Store will present an event that sounds very, very, fun frightening — “Scare Approaches 101.” Presented by “The School of Scaring” a.k.a. “Monsters University,” the school’s dean, Abigail Hardscrabble, will coach your little monsters in scaring tactics, and they’ll get some pretty cool souvenirs, too. The classes are at 10:30 and 11:30 a.m., as well as 12:30 p.m., but they’re limited to 30 students per session, so you might want to arrive a bit early to secure a spot.

The Creative Arts Center of Dallas is continuing their eight-week series of presentations and demonstrations by local artists. Head over to Nordstrom at 2 p.m. if you’d like to be inspired by some talented artisans.

Also at 2 p.m., Daryl Sprout will present “Snake Encounters,”  an entertaining program featuring “comedy, magic, and slithering tails.”

While you’re at the mall, be sure to check out the Richardson Adult Literacy Center’s birdhouse raffle, on level one by Gap. It features 13 unique birdhouses, designed and constructed by businesses and local artists. The raffle benefits the organization’s ESL programs, and tickets are just $5 each.
