Apple bobbing at Pine St. guard station - today
For anyone who actually enjoys putting their face in the backwash of a dozen germ-infested people before you, there will be apple bobbing. There's a bucket with some water and apples behind the Pine Street guard station. Knock yourselves out, you filthy animals. For Pete's sake, don't put the apples back in the bucket.

Midnight tour of Pioneer Cemetery - tonight
At precisely the stroke of midnight, the corpses of individuals buried in Pioneer Cemetery will rise from their graves and with ghastly howls discuss the historical significance of their lives and the surrounding area. Please no photography. Robert Wilson will be also leading a haunted hayride departing from his tombstone every half hour until 3 a.m.

Exclusive MINOS underground areas tour - today
Come for an exclusive tour of the MINOS underground areas! No need to RSVP, just show up. No garlic, crosses or stakes are permitted on the tour. O negative blood types are especially invited. Instructions will be left at the MINOS building for letting yourself down the elevator, one at a time, please. Bring your friends!

Thumb-pricking instruction in Wilson Hall - today

Sťance in Kuhn Barn, folk dancing to follow - tomorrow - witching hour
The Fermilab Wiccan Society will be leading a sťance, free and open to the public, in the Kuhn Barn at 1 a.m. If you've never summoned anyone from beyond the grave before, this is a great opportunity to start!

Dog training area closed through Nov. 1
The dog training area will be off-limits until further notice due to werewolf sightings. ESH&Q will provide information at a later date about the reopening, as well as information about the dangers of playing fetch with changelings, no matter how cuddly they may appear.
