The FCBank Ice Skating Rink will be available to skaters from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m at Washington Square, and winter princesses Anna and Elsa will be entertaining guests in Millennium Park.
Skating is free, and rental skates are available at no cost. You may also bring your own ice skates, but figure skates are not permitted.
Luminaries will line the downtown sidewalks during Candlelight Christmas from 5:00 – 8:00 pm on Saturday, December 7. The evening will also feature holiday concessions, extended shopping hours, ice skating at Washington Square, a Polar Express storywalk sponsored by United Way and the Bucyrus Public Library, and visits with Santa in the Kiwanis Santa House in Schines Art Park.
Businesses can pick up paper bags for luminaries at the Chamber office during business hours, and sand to weight the bags is available beside the access road between Baker’s Pizza’s new parking lot and the railroad tracks.
