Fell’s Point
Starting at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 31, roads will be closed from Aliceanna St. south to the waterfront. From east to west, roads between Caroline St. and Wolfe St.—including Dallas St., Bond St., Broadway, and Ann St.—will be closed with no access. Furthermore, there will be no east/west traffic allowed between Caroline St. and Wolfe St., including Thames St., Lancaster St., Dock St., and westbound on Fell St.

The closures end on Thursday morning at 5 a.m.

At the most recent Fell’s Point Task Force meeting, First District Councilman Jim Kraft said that cars left parked in that area during the closure time would be towed, but it would be “relocation” towing, not parking penalty towing.

Kraft also said that the parking garage at Fleet St. and Eden St. would offer free parking for residents during the road closures; contact the garage for more information.

The radio station 98 Rock is hosting a Halloween party on Broadway Square with ABC Equipment Rental from 3-10:30 p.m. There will be 100 portable outhouses, provided by the party hosts.

The Police Department will have a command center at the intersection of Thames St. and Broadway.

Taxi stands will be located at the eastern and western ends of Thames St.—one at Caroline St. and one at Wolfe St. There is no Tipsy Taxi service this year.

Highlandtown
“Trick o’ Treat on Highlandtown Main Street” is Wednesday, Oct. 31, from 3-6 p.m. Participating local businesses on Eastern Ave., from Robinson St. to Haven St., will be handing out candy to costumed children.

The 400 and 500 blocks of Conkling St. and Highland Ave. will also have participating businesses.

Look for the distinctive flyer in the door or window of participating businesses. A ghost with a trick-or-treat bag is on it.
