THE BLACK CYCLONE at Malabar Farm • October 3-5 & 10-12, 2014
Picture Ohio in 1902. Still in the shadow of the Civil War, and Civil Rights for Black was merely a volatile talking point. Small towns were fighting for identity and respect and enjoying prosperity for the first time. New ways to entertain oneself became popular - and many small towns began to field "Football Clubs" and compete with one another for bragging rights. "The Black Cyclone" captures the strength of one family, how they fought to make a home in white America - again a backdrop of what has become the NFL. The forgotten baseball and football legend, Charles Folis had no idea how he touched America forever…by impressing those he knew … and as The Black Cyclone will help Charles do what his great nice stated at the dedication of the Wooster High School Field in his honor.."Run, Charles, run for the ages…" Held in Malabar Farm State Park main barn.

Kids Can Explore The Great Outdoors At Cleveland Metroparks

Outdoor Odyssey Event

Kids and their families can spend the afternoon learning about nature and outdoor recreation at Cleveland Metroparks free Outdoor Odyssey event on Saturday, October 11 from noon to 4 p.m. It's a great opportunity for kids to try - perhaps for the first time - golfing, fishing, hiking and bird watching all in one place. No previous experience is necessary, just a sense of adventure and a desire to learn.

Kids travel from station to station and can "sample" different outdoor recreation activities with guidance from Cleveland Metroparks staff and volunteers. Kids and adults can try their luck fishing in the Ohio & Erie Canal stocked just for this event. Guests can bring their own gear. Free bait and loaner fishing equipment will be available to use while supplies last.

Other stations provide opportunities for discovery including live animal encounters, stargazing, arts and crafts, water safety tips and learning how to fix a bicycle flat. Receive a passport stamp from each station. A completed passport earns a prize at the end of the day's odyssey.

A variety of nature and community organizations will also be on hand with activities and displays including Lake Erie Nature & Science Center, Cleveland Metroparks EcoExplorers, U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, Cleveland Astronomical Society and Cuyahoga Astronomical Association.

Outdoor Odyssey is organized by Youth Outdoors, a division of Cleveland Metroparks. Youth Outdoors is a partnership between Cleveland Metroparks, 4-H, the City of Cleveland, and The Ohio State University Extension and strives to meet the developmental needs of urban youth living in Cleveland through involvement in outdoor and nature exploration activities.

For more information, call 216-206-1010 or visit clevelandmetroparks.com.

Outdoor Odyssey is located downhill from CanalWay Center located on Whittlesey Way off the East 49th Street entrance of Cleveland Metroparks Ohio and Erie Canal Reservation - between Grant Avenue and Canal Road in Cuyahoga Heights - just off the I-77 Grant Avenue exit.
