From a film screening and panel on clean water to an ice hockey face-​​off between the Huskies and UNH, we’ve got your weekend all planned out.

Husky Hockey: A standing-​​room-​​only crowd packed Matthews Arena last weekend for the men’s hockey team’s season opener against UMass and tonight’s game against UNH is expected to be just as crowded and just as exciting. Stu­dents can get free tickets now on myNEU for Friday night’s game, which starts at 7 p.m. The Huskies will honor former head coach Don McKenney at the start of the game.

Boston Book Fes­tival: The Copley Square area, including the Boston Public Library, will be swarming with word nerds this weekend for the annual Boston Book Fes­tival, a free day­long event on Sat­urday fea­turing talks and events about books, ranging from children’s sto­ries to poetry to non­fic­tion. Seating is lim­ited and advance reser­va­tions, which can be made online, are required for some events.

Mid­night Movies: Are you afraid of the dark? This Friday and Sat­urday at mid­night, the Coolidge Corner The­atre in Brook­line, Mass., is ready to scare the pants off movie­goers with “Creepshow,” a col­lab­o­ra­tion between author Stephen King and director George Romero that pays tribute to pulp horror comics of the 1950s. The film strings together five grue­some and ter­ri­fying tales, including one that fea­tures an appear­ance by King himself.

A ‘Civil’ Dis­cus­sion: Attorney Jan Schlicht­mann, who rep­re­sented the affected fam­i­lies in the famous Woburn, Mass., water-​​contamination case, will be on campus this Sat­urday for a screening of “A Civil Action,” the John Tra­volta film based on his land­mark case, fol­lowed by a panel dis­cus­sion on the need for clean water. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Blackman Audi­to­rium. Admis­sion is free, as is lunch.

A Bruins parade, delayed: Months after the Boston Bruins won the Stanley Cup, the Har­vard Lam­poon will honor the hockey team on Sunday with a parade and the awarding of the club’s “Best Sports Team Ever” award, which will likely be pre­sented in the usual zany style fans of the Lam­poon have come to expect. Activ­i­ties start in Har­vard Square at 1 p.m., with the Bruins expected to arrive via duck boats at 4:15 p.m. at the main stage to accept the award.
