Dover Police Trick-or-Treat festival set for Oct. 27

DOVER — Dover Police Department will hold its second annual Trick-or-Treat festival on Friday, Oct. 27, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at Legislative Mall.

The event is sponsored in conjunction with the Downtown Dover Partnership and City of Dover.

Organizers said streets surrounding Legislative Mall will be filled with police cars, fire trucks, emergency equipment, local businesses, and organizations as costumed children Trick-or-Treat at each display. Families will have a chance to meet their local police and fire personnel, explore the vehicles and equipment they use, get to know more about local businesses and organizations and what they offer to the community, all while trick-or-treating, police said.

There is no cost for any of the events or activities for attendees. While there is no age limit to attend, police ask that only children 13 and under trick-or-treat.

Costumes are not required. There will be a limited supply of trick-or-treat bags to be given away, so attendees are asked to bring their own.

Roadways will be closed to traffic and parking beginning at 4 p.m. to ensure the safest conditions for attendees. Streets that will be closed include:

Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard (North and South) from Legislative Avenue to Federal Street and Legislative Avenue and Federal Street between North and South Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.

Parking details will be announced closer to the event.

Dover Police invite local businesses and organization to participate in this event at no cost. For more information, contact Master Cpl. Mark Hoffman at 736-7130 or
