LIMA — This weekend will give area thrill-seekers one more weekend to feel the fear.

The stars are aligned in an already frightening 2020. Halloween falls on a Saturday. There’s a full moon, which happens every 19 years, and it happens to be a Blue Moon too for the first time in 76 years.

There are a handful of fundraisers taking advantage of the spooky weekend.

• Bruster’s Car Wash will host a Tunnel of Terror from 8 to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday at its 940 Bellefontaine Avenue car wash. Admission is $10 for the works car wash. Proceeds will benefit Toys for Tots.

• A Halloween Pet Walk and Costume Contest to raise awareness around domestic violence and sexual assault is scheduled for 4 to 6 p.m. Friday, Oct. 30 at Ottawa Metro Park. A donation of $5 is requested to enter the contest and raffle. There is a $5 early registration fee per pet via Facebook, which includes one free raffle tickets. Raffle tickets are $1 each of $6 for $5, with winners posted on Facebook and contacted via text. The event is sponsored by Crime Victim Services.
