Toledo has, and is close to, a lot of great baseball games in the summer. The Mud Hens are in the heart of Downtown, and the Tigers and Indians are a short trip away. For more baseball fun, instead of traveling to a different place, travel through time and catch a historical base ball game.
Weird historical tidbits like this fill the pages of Ohio’s Black Hand Syndicate: The Birth of Organized Crime in America, a new book published by Arcadia Press, that looks at the rise of organized crime in Ohio, thanks to the John Amicon Brothers and Company fruit store in Marion.
In Toledo we have access to home grown horror films like Shelved and the New Blood series. Now, a new horror film called Witchtown, instead of trying to scare you, wants to gross you out while you’re having a good time.
Sylvania’s Tree City Film Festival is a great opportunity to see local handmade films, thanks to the festivals 50-Hour Film Challenge and Shorties programs.
