Temple of Terror: A Plugin Happening

 

Join us on Friday October 26th, as we reopen the doors of the vacated century-old Zion Evangenical Church. We’re transforming this place of worship into a Temple of Terror! As you wander this heritage site that dates back to 1893, will you feel the chills of paranormal activities? Will the paranormal demons skulk around as you dance the night away in their chapel? Will they interfere as you get your palm read in the rotunda? We will be surrounded by spirits of the past. And will these spirits be demon possessed or holy beings? There is only one way to find out…
Proceeds: Carizon

Fatal Friday: A Plugin Happening – October 2017

  Plugin reopened the doors of the vacated Ratz-Bechtel Funeral Home & Cremation Centre. As you wandered the mansion of one of the city’s earliest industrialists, you might have met the spirits of residents past. Or in the empty embalming room, you could have heard the voices of thousands of dearly departed. And what did you find when you crawled through the attic casket closets with a flashlight in hand?Proceeds: Extend-A-Family

 

Canada: A Plugin Happening – July 2017

We experienced Canada like never before! You and your flannel-cladded friends tried your hand at Inuit inuksuk building, or got bucked off an angry Albertan bull. We headed down to Victoria Park to celebrate Canada’s 150th year with poutine, beer, cover songs, and more apologies than you can shake a beaver tail at, eh?
Proceeds: Child Witness Centre

 

Pints and Pianos: A Plugin Happening – February 2017

We took over the second floor of the newly renovated Walper Hotel with local brews, #DTK trivia and a full-out duelling piano competition. What is a piano duel you may ask? Duelling pianos is a form of improv entertainment, usually with two grand pianos, each played by professional who sing and entertain. Audience song suggestions, humour and battling are common. Proceeds: Ray of Hope

 

Halloween: A Plugin Happening – October 2016
