BUCYRUS – The Bucyrus Area Chamber of Commerce has announced the return of First Friday Bucyrus for 2019. Held on the first Friday in June, July, August, and September, the First Friday series brings community members and visitors to the sidewalks of downtown Bucyrus to enjoy shopping, street vendors, music, food, children’s activities, and more.
Tyler Jacobs, executive director at the Chamber of Commerce, says the Chamber anticipates a successful event each month this summer, continuing to build on the growing participation and excitement from previous First Friday series.
“We’re excited to continue the tradition of First Friday here at the Chamber, with support from our First Friday planning committee,” said Jacobs. “This event is the result of the passion and vision of current and past committee members, and it’s been incredibly successful so far. The First Friday series aligns perfectly with the Chamber’s mission to promote, support, and enhance the economic climate in Bucyrus while fostering positive connections among members of the local business community.”
Jacobs said the event continues to grow each year, with new entertainment, food, and vendors added regularly.
“We are bringing back our popular event themes from prior years, and are expanding September’s theme to ‘Harvest and History,’ in celebration of the upcoming anniversary of the settlement of the territory. We are also offering local businesses and organization the opportunity to sponsor specific components of First Friday Bucyrus, including the popular princesses and superheroes and our musical acts,” said Jacobs.
This year’s dates and themes are as follows:
June 7: Fun & Fitness
July 5: Christmas in July
Aug. 2: Celebrate Hometown Heroes
Sept. 6: Harvest & History
The Chamber will continue to accept First Friday sponsorships and vendor applications throughout the summer, which are available on the Chamber’s website: https://bucyrusohio.com/first-friday-bucyrus/. For more information, call 419-562-4811 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
