— There were 1,000 carved pumpkins alight during the “Saturday Nightmare” in historic downtown Germantown.
The second annual event began at 3 p.m. with activities for all ages, including a car show featuring 300 to 400 hot rods, carnival rides, games for children, Halloween costume contest, beauty pageant, food, beer truck and live entertainment.
“It’s nice for us to be able to give back to our community we love,” event co-organizer Dave Eshbaugh said.
The highlight of the “Saturday Nightmare” is the pumpkin glow, which this year featured 1,000 jack-o’-lanterns.
The festivities mark the final of four Saturday Night Out events, held the third Saturday of the month in June, July, August and October. Local businesses, sponsors and the city helps make the events a success, Eshbaugh said.
The summer events draw 2,500 each. But in October, the crowd is easily 5,000, he said, after one car show organizer came up with a Halloween theme.
“It became our flagship event,” he said. “It’s phenomenal for our community.”
Germantown Fire Chief Dan Alldred said he opens the firehouse to the community and serves popcorn. It’s also an opportunity to interact with kids and teach fire safety.

HUBER HEIGHTS — Executive Boulevard lanes in Huber Heights reopened after being closed for several hours following a gas leak Thursday morning.
Crews continued to make repairs to the leaking gas line that evacuated fifteen business along the road around 11 a.m., according to Huber Heights Fire Chief Mark Ashworth.
Ashworth said a construction crew working in the area struck a 6-inch gas main directly under Executive, which caused the gas to leak from underground.
Executive is one of the city’s most commercial areas and Ashworth said the leak would impact the businesses in the area.
Utility companies, including DP&L and Vectren, worked on scene to isolate their utilities as well.

DAYTON — Dayton police arrested an 18-year-old man after a failed robbery attempt at Table 33 restaurant in downtown Dayton.
According to a Dayton Police report, just after 5 p.m. Thursday, a man in camo pants and a red shirt grabbed a female bartender by the arm and ordered her twice to open the cash register.
The woman refused both demands and the man ran away.
A Dayton officer spotted the suspect a short time later on Salem Ave.
The officer gave chase and arrested the man a mile and a half away from the restaurant near the 700-block of Salem Ave. He was arrested and taken to the Montgomery County jail.
