The Dover Police Department is excited to announce its Second Annual Trick-or-Treat event following an extremely successful 2016 event that saw an estimated 7,000 locals in attendance. The Dover Police Department, in conjunction with the Downtown Dover Partnership, and City of Dover decided to make the event an annual tradition in the days following the inaugural event, announcing that it will traditionally be held on the Friday preceding Halloween.
On October 27th, from 5:30pm-8:00pm, 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.
There is no cost for any of the events or activities for attendees. While there is no age limit to attend, we kindly request 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.
The roadways surrounding Legislative Mall will be closed to traffic and parking beginning at 4pm to ensure the safest conditions for attendees and allow them to freely explore all the historic area has to offer. 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.
Details for parking will be released closer to the event date.
The Dover Police Department is also inviting local businesses and organization to participate in this event at no cost. For more information, please contact 302-736-7130.
The event is the newest addition to a series of community outreach events the Dover Police Department regularly hosts. For more information, please contact M/Cpl. Mark Hoffman at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 302-736-7130.
