Yorktown Police Department Chief of Police Robert Noble advises motorists that on Saturday October 29, 2022 between 2:00 pm and 3:00 pm the Yorktown Lions Club will be sponsoring a Halloween Costume Parade.
To provide for safety of parade participants and spectators the following roadways will be closed temporarily to accommodate this event:
1. Commerce Street @ Downing Drive
2. Hanover Street @ Commerce Street
3. Commerce Street between Veterans Rd and Downing Drive
4. Veterans Road between Commerce Street and Maple Hill Street.
Veterans Road may remain closed beyond 3:00 pm between Commerce St. and Maple Hill Street. Yorktown Police will accommodate motorists who need to access the Albert A. Capellini Community Cultural Center for early election voting.
Halloween 2022 is rapidly approaching, it’s likely that more trick-or-treaters may once again take to the streets on Halloween. And as children may continue take to the streets, their risk of being injured by motorists greatly increases. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that Halloween is consistently one of the top three days for pedestrian injuries and fatalities. This year, Halloween falls on a Monday, so we can expect trick-or-treaters to be out in the after-school hours.
Chief Robert Noble offers these tips from AAA to families who may venture out on Halloween:
