Trick-or-treat will be held in the Town of Chesterton from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 31--Halloween.

So the Police Commission voted unanimously at its meeting Thursday night.

Police Chief Dave Cincoski told members that “all jurisdictions in Porter County, including unincorporated Porter County, have set or are considering setting trick-or-treat hours for Wednesday, Oct. 31.”

Downtown Trick-or-Treat

In related business, members also voted unanimously to close the following streets from approximately 3:45 to 6:15 p.m. Friday, Oct. 26, to accommodate the crowds expected at the hugely popular Downtown Trick-or-Treat, sponsored by the Duneland Chamber of Commerce:

* Broadway from South Calumet Road to Fourth Street.

* South Calumet Road from Indiana Ave. to Wabash Ave.

As Cincoski noted, the issue is chiefly one of safety. “This event attracts a large multitude of families to the Downtown area leading to a mass congestion of pedestrians in the area,” he said.

Member Pete Duda, for his part, had nothing but good things to say about Downtown Trick-or-Treat. “The event is growing from year to year and it’s a fun event for the kids in town,” he said. “It’s a joy to see. It’s a great evening. And it’s a good thing.”

Twilight Christmas Parade

While they were at it, members voted unanimously as well to approve the following parking ban for the Twilight Christmas Parade, Saturday, Nov. 24, beginning at 4 p.m.: on the north side of Broadway from South Calumet Road to Third Street, for the purpose of allowing spectators the space to view the parade “without interfering with the passage of parade vehicles and for their own safety.”

The parade will step off at approximately 5:15 p.m. and conclude at approximately 6 p.m.

Cincoski said that the Street Department will post signage and officers will be on hand to facilitate in the removal of vehicles.
