The theme of this week’s Three for the Road is laughter and inspiration.

Sometimes you go to events to not only have fun, but to take something in your heart home with you. That’s the theme of the three events this week.

Take for example author Andrea Beaty who writes books that not only makes both kids and adults laugh but inspire young readers to reach for the stars.

The Brunswick Veterans Day parade is where you can have some fun, but also reflect and be inspired by those who have sacrificed so much for our country.

And finally, the performance of The Raybould Brothers at Olde Mother Brewing Co. is a show that promises side-splitting laughs. A good laugh, after all, does the body good.

So pick your choice from Three for the Road this week, or visit our online calendar to find more great events.
