Itís a nice way to kick off Halloween, but this year is something truly special as the event will act as a sneak peek to Glass Axisí new 12,500-square-foot facility in Franklinton.

Along with the tour, there are activities and workshops throughout the weekend (on a first-come, first-serve basis) from 12-7 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
