Introducing new items such as pumpkins into animals’ habitats is a great form of enrichment, in which animals are presented with different stimuli that encourage the animals to explore their surroundings, manipulate objects and engage in naturalistic behaviors. Enrichment is a key component to the Zoo’s commitment to excellence in animal care. (The fact that it’s a lot of fun for visitors is a bonus!)

This summer, Chris Bores from the Pursuit of the Paranormal Documentary will be hosting both the Ghost Tour and Ghost Hunt. Chris Bores is a Leading Ghost Communicator in the field. In the past he has gotten a 90 minute conversation with a spirit, as well as other lengthy conversations since the release of the film. At previous ghost hunts, Chris has gotten taps on command, EVP’s, cold spots, and more. Odds at experiencing paranormal activity at this facility are the best you will find in Northern Ohio.

The event runs from 8pm-12am with check in at 7:30pm. At check-in you’ll be asked for your driver's license/state ID, be given a list of rules and regulations, and asked to sign a waiver. Doors will be locked at 8pm. Promptly at 8pm, there will be a guided tour of the facilities. You'll learn to navigate the CAC and where most of the rumored "activity" is. From 9pm - 2am will be unguided independent investigation. Your ghost hunt ends when you exit the premises. There will be no reentry. At 10pm, snacks are served.

There are a limited number of spaces for each hunt. If available, the door price for tickets is $45.

Glacity Theatre Collective 
Fix, Dolls and Pink - three scares in one!
Handmade Toledo
1717 Adams St.
October 23-24 & 30-31

Continuing along the track of GTC’s Junkbox initiative, “Nightmares Come In Threes” includes three original, 20-minute horror pieces developed from nightmares written in dream journals of Megan Aherne and Edmund Lingan.

“Fix” is a moment in the life of a bottom level pusher of an alternative, man-made drug. It’s a bloody, campy, wild ride of a show. “Dolls” is a dark and surreal introspection of a deranged man obsessed with baby dolls. If he fancies you, he may invite you over for a tea party. "Pink" is a twisted cartoon-like musical of rituals and furries. That’s right, furries.

The performances will run similar to haunted house attractions, in which the audience visits the separate spaces one after another, all located within the gallery space at Handmade Toledo.

First the audience will see “Fix,” then “Dolls,” and lastly “Pink.” These are interactive pieces to varying degrees – in some cases actors will simply move through the audience space, in others an audience member may be asked to join the actors onstage. However, actors will not lay hands on any audience member at any time.

Due to vulgar language, violent content and partial nudity, audience members must be 18+ or if younger, accompanied by an adult.
Performance dates are October 23-24 and 30-31 at 8pm. Tickets are $15 in advance and at the door. Attendees of Zombie Crawl (on Saturday, 10/24) will receive $5 off of the ticket price on the day of the event as long as they’re wearing a ZC wristband. Please note: Adams St. will be closed off for ZC on October 24 starting at 3pm. and entrance to the venue will require the purchase of a ZC wristband, plan to purchase tickets at the door if you will be attending that evening.
