What was billed as the “largest Manufacturing Day celebration in all of Missouri and quite possibly one of the largest in the United States” lived up to its billing last week as more than 1,200 people attended the block party on N.

On October 31 residents of Cuba Manor will be having their annual trick-or-treating event, and they need candy.
