This time around, the show features stories from Rebecca Bell, John Cheesebrew, John Comorrato, Courtney Heiser, Kendra Johnson, and Dan Swartz. 2. Annual Halloween Show: Run Fast and DON’T Look Back! Friday, October 14 and Saturday, October 15 at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. both nights I think their teaser says it best: “Are there really ghosts floating down the hallways of North Side High School? Do the stairs at the old Byron Health Center really go on forever? Local choreographers have gathered some of the most chilling local tales of terror as creative source material for this years’ Halloween show. You may never drive by Devils Hollow, the historic Embassy Theatre, Bostwick Bridge or Chapman Road ever again. This year’s haunting Halloween performance, Run Fast and DON’T Look Back, in collaboration with the Downtown Improvement District’s Fright Night, is sure to leave you looking over your shoulder all the way home. Come in costume, regular street clothes, or in your Sunday best, just don’t come ALONE!” 3. 2016 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk of Fort Wayne Saturday, October 15 at 7 a.m. This 5k brings awareness to and celebrates survivors of Breast Cancer. It’s non-competitive, so come out, enjoy the morning, and show your support! 4. Indoor Farmers Market Saturday, October 15 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Never fear — Farmers markets happen all year round! They’ve transitioned indoors at Parkview Field. The Breast Cancer walk is happening at the same time, so you can stop by both. 5. Fright Night 2016 Saturday, October 15 — all day YAY!
