Bucyrus Trick-or-Treat 2017

The City of Bucyrus will have Trick or Treat on Tuesday, October 31, 2017 from 5 to 7 PM.

For young children, Halloween night is one of the best of the year. But trick-or-treating can be dangerous if kids and parents are’t careful. Take a look at some vital trick-or-treating tips before you accompany your child.

1. Plan a route in advance.
Trick-or-treating could take you several streets away from your house, which can cause sore legs and a bit of frustration. Avoid long paths by mapping out a route before leaving the house. Stick to paths that you and your child are familiar with to avoid getting lost.

2. Wear comfy shoes.
Make sure you and your children are in comfortable, well-fitting shoes. Girls in dresses should avoid heels, and all shoelaces should be double-tied to avoid tripping in the dark.

3. Stay well-lit.
Apply reflective tape to your child’s costume to ensure they are seen by drivers on the road. Also, carry a flashlight with you to keep your child’s path lit at all times.

4. Make sure all costumes are short.
Long costumes that drag on the ground can be dangerous, especially at night. After purchasing your child’s costume, make sure it’s an appropriate length, and hem anything that’s too long to avoid tripping.

5. Avoid masks.
Masks can make it difficult for your child to see or breathe. If possible, skip the mask altogether and use non-toxic make-up to complete the costume instead.

6. Use flexible props.
Try to avoid costumes that have weapons as accessories. But if your child’s costume won’t be complete without a weapon, make sure it is rubber or plastic. Choose a prop that won’t cause injury to your child or their friends.

7. Check your child’s candy.
When sorting through candy at the end of the night, be sure to throw away any candy that is not in its original wrapper, or looks as though it has been opened.

Beautiful classic cars in downtown Bucyrus

Superfly showdown & cruise 2016

What is Superfly Showdown?
The Superfly Showdown is an event where all car minded people join together to show off their work. Unlike the weekly event, this event brings judges from out of state to ensure a fair and unbiased judgment on cars that enter the competition. 

Cars will be judged on interior and exterior cleanliness (is there dust on the dash? Is your windshield full of streaks? How about the openings to your doors and truck?), how well your modifications come together... Are they just slapped on, or did you pay attention to detail, and engine bay. Our judges have an eye for it all and will be going over each car to determine scores.
