DOWNTOWN HALLOWEEN HAPPENINGS
Downtown Trick or Treat-Monday October 31Downtown Blacksburg, Inc. invite you to Downtown Halloween Happenings on Monday October 31st!
The merchants of downtown Blacksburg, and the Blacksburg Police Department are ready to welcome you for the safest and happiest Halloween ever in the downtown area!
Once again this year the Blacksburg Police Department will be promoting their two year round campaigns for the town- Blacksburg Be Safe (a K-12 initiative) and No Hokie Left Behind (College age initiative).
Fraternity members are working with the police to provide additional safety during the Trick or Treat session. Extra Police Officers will also be located downtown to assist in traffic calming and safe crossing.
Bright yellow caution tape will be attached to the lampposts along the west side of Main St between College and Roanoke to prevent people stepping off the side walk into traffic. The Fraternity volunteers will all be wearing the bright safety vests and they will assist with crossing Main Street at the Lee Street and Jackson Street pedestrian crossings. Police Officers will assist with crossing Main Street at the Roanoke St and College Avenue intersections.
We are confident that these extra measures will help greatly in providing a safer and happier Downtown Trick or Treat experience for the entire community.
