Haunted Cleveland 

When: Fri., Oct. 1 2010

Residents of the West Clinton block club in the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood are the driving force behind the Fourth Annual Historic Haunts Walking Tour. They researched the area's history and wrote skits about the most colorful former residents. "Each tour has a guide, a good talker who gives them information about the neighborhood," says enthusiastic new participant Judith Allen, who rehabbed an old house and joined the block club even before she moved in earlier this year. Needless to say, there has been enough murder, mayhem, and scandalous activity over the years to fuel the nine playlets presented on the 45-minute tour. But it's not all bad behavior: One skit spotlights a local family's World War II Victory Garden, a forerunner of Detroit Shoreway's current leadership in the sustainability movement. Tours depart from Parish Hall (6205 Detroit Ave.) every 15 minutes between 6 and 8:45 p.m. tonight and tomorrow. They end up at the Gordon Square Arcade (6516 Detroit Ave.) for free refreshments and music. Admission is $5, with kids 15 and under free. Look for "West Clinton Historic Haunts" on Facebook for more information. — Pantsios
