Since 2012, the town of Bucoda has transformed every fall season, becoming the BOO-CODA SPOOK-TACULAR! According to Mayor Alan Carr, the event is a way to raise awareness of the small town and draw visitors, and is a fundraiser for community projects.

The entire month of October has fall fun for everyone. Highlights include trick-or-treating (every night in October); a hearse procession and viewing (October 13); pumpkin carving, ghost story telling, and coloring contests (October 20); an award-winning haunted house; and pumpkin pancake breakfasts (every Saturday in October).

If you love Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” be sure you’re in town on October 27 for Bucoda Thriller. On this day, people around the world take to the streets to try and break a world record for the most people dancing to this iconic song. Watch for firefighters dancing with their boots; drop in some cash for their annual “Thrill the Boot” fundraiser for the Bucoda Firefighter Association. Monies raised help local families in need throughout the year.
