Students plan Glow in the Dark Haunted Trail at Maumee Bay

Press Staff Writer

        American Cultural Exchange Service (ACES) International high school students are busy creating the 5th Annual Glow in the Dark Haunted Trail for a cause at Maumee Bay State Park.
        The haunting good time will be held Oct. 7 and 8 from 6-10 p.m., rain or shine, in Parking Lot #7 (near the big hill) at the park, located at 1400 State Park Rd., Oregon
        The event will feature Halloween games, face painting, henna tattoos, a spooktacular bake sale and food trucks, including Toledo Let’s Eat, (Friday and Saturday), O-Henry’s Kitchen on Wheels (Friday only) and Detroit Mini Donuts (Saturday only). Attendees can also try their luck at the Casket Raffle booth to win prizes sponsored by local businesses.
         From 7-10 p.m., enter the creepy dark Haunted Glow Trail through the cemetery in Death Valley, speed through Ghost Lane, Witch Way and Scarecrow Pumpkin Patch then exit through Spider Alley. ACES Global ghouls will haunt and hide as kids trick-or-treat on this Spooktacular trail.     
        Admission to the Forest Glow Trail is $10 for adults, $5 for ages 6-15 and free for ages 5 and younger with a paid adult.       
        A Kiddie Climb up the mountain will be available from 6-9 p.m. for children under 5 who do not want to be frightened but want to trick-or-treat. The cost is $2 per person.
        Costumes are encouraged. Advance may be purchased at
        Once again, in response to an urgent need will be the Hygiene for Humanity Drop-off at the Trail event co- sponsored by ACES and Christ United Methodist Church in Oregon. Everyone donating hygiene items will get a free game ticket. Proceeds will benefit Maumee Bay State Park (Mobi Mat for the Beach for wheelchair access), World Affairs Council of NWO/ Educational programs and American Cultural Exchange Service Projects.
        ACES is seeking businesses to donate raffle prizes, candy or money to sponsor a game or trick-or-treat stop. Contact Val Virag at 419-466-7074 for more information.
