CLEVELAND (October 10, 2017) – “Trick or Treat: Arts and Eats” celebrates Halloween this Friday, October 13, from 5 to 10 p.m. at the October Walkabout Tremont. The event will include a variety of activities for children, adults and even pets, extended hours at art galleries and retail shops, and a variety of fall-themed food & drink specials at Tremont’s restaurants and bars—AND more than 20 places to take in the Indians in game one of the ALCS (yes, the Indians will win game 5 against the Yankees).
Street entertainers will be up and down Professor Avenue, including the Heartbeats Jump Rope Team, life-sized Day of the Dead puppets, stilt walkers and live musicians. And, for dog owners, there’s a costume contest for the canines from 6:30-7:30 at Lucky Park (Starkweather & Professor Avenues).
For lovers of breakfast/brunch at Lucky’s Café, the restaurant will be open for dinner, a rare occasion, with a fall-themed menu and wine from Wine & Design, adult pumpkin carving on the patio (The Carving) and an outdoor TV to watch the Indians game. Tremont General Store is hosting a pumpkin decorating party for kids.
There will also be pop-up tents with artists from within and outside Tremont. Visitors can also enjoy locally produced art in many shops, restaurants and bars, view a local history display, and tour St. Theodosius Russian Orthodox Cathedral.

Adela Redding, Stained Glass and other media
Adela believes “each piece is part of myself that is talking to you, whispering to you a moment of my life; they are my children, a representation of my present and my past.” Creating a new design is a time for me to reflect with moments of thought and emotional introspection. I look around at broken and left over pieces to use as well as recycled parts and materials; every individual scrap item can tell its own story. Each piece can make an impression and asks me to bring it to life. The colors I choose remind me of my country, my culture, my soul. When it all comes together, the individual pieces combine to tell an even larger story.
The Southside – 2207 W 11th St
Thaddeus Schau, photographic artist
Thaddeus Schau is a recent transplant to Cleveland from West Virginia. In his presented photography you will find a combination of nature and urban settings/themes with many images tending to draw the viewer in to the depth and contemplation of the moment. His displays flow from particular hyper-realism style, to abstract appreciation of colors, to juxtapositions between order and chaos. Fleeting intense sunsets, creative perspectives, iconic actor appreciation, and simple images of surprising depth are present within this exposition of some of his work Karaoke every Walkabout Tremont night from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m.

Kari continues to explore & expand into new mediums & visual concepts in her off time.

Kelly Finnegan, Photographer
“I am a photographer living in Cleveland. I have a collection of images, old and new, that I am constantly editing and adding to. I originally picked up a camera and began to capture images because of my constant need to people watch, and excitement over naturally placed splashes of color in an otherwise forgotten landscape. Holding a camera, I find it exciting to simply walk down a street or to drive past an area I see everyday. I stop and notice more and see the things I would normally overlook. For me, photography slows down time until I find a moment worth capturing.”
Flying Monkey – 819 Jefferson Ave
Chris Kalfas, Systems Manager at ArtWall
We can’t wait to see what he does because there is no way to find any contact information online or to reach him through any old-fashioned methods like finding his phone number. Exciting and unusual! Who doesn’t love a mystery guest artist!
