Bats are the classic harbingers of Halloween, well, along with spiders, skeletons, witches and pumpkins. But bats are pretty much at the top of the list. They're scary, screechy, nocturnal and sometimes rabid. They also happen to be the world's only flying mammal. So even if you think they're freaky, come pay them some respect at the third annual Bat Fest at the Cincinnati Museum Center. There will be various bat-themed events spread across the museum including discussions by bat experts, live bats, flight demos, a artificial limestone cave and other bat-tivities.
