SALT LAKE CITY — The annual Halloween party hosted by the Salt Lake City Police and Fire Departments will be bigger and better this year, with festivities stretched between the plaza at the new Public Safety Building, across 300 East, and Library Square.
From 2-5:30 p.m. Thursday, October 31, the public is invited to trick-or-treat and meet police officers and firefighters. The police department will close 300 East between 400 and 500 South to accommodate the free party, which will include candy and games from the following partners:
- Bomb Squad
- Volunteer Corps
- Patrol Officers
- Photos with Chief Chris Burbank
- Ladder trucks
- Pumpkin drop
- Photos with Chief Kurt Cook
- Police Mutual Aid Association
- Salt Lake Police Association
- City Library
- The Shops at Library Square
- The Leonardo
- Salt Lake City Mayor’s Office
- Salt Lake City Council’s Office
Be sure to look for creepy crawlies with The Bug Lady, Christy Bills of the Natural History Museum of Utah; birds of prey with Earthwings; and a great deal on hot chocolate at the Cherry’s Hot Chocolate food truck.
SAFETY TIPS FROM THE SLCPD
Tips for a Safe Halloween: Carry a flashlight and travel in a group. Adults should accompany young children at all times. Never enter a stranger’s car or home. Parents: check treats before allowing children to eat anything. For more Halloween safety tips, download our Halloween safety brochure or watch this short video (Español).
Join the Capitol Hill and Rose Park CCs on Saturday, November 9, from 8:00 – 10:00 AM to clean-up the sidewalk on the south side of the 600 North Viaduct (from 400 West to the I-15 interchange). Dress warmly, bring gloves and tools and have a good time making the sidewalk more accessible for students and other pedestrians. UDOT will provide support. Meet at the foot of the ramp at 400 West 600 North.
Hot drinks and food will be provided after the clean-up. In case of bad weather or snow on the ground, the clean-up will be postponed until Spring 2014.
