Tomorrow, Tuesday, October 31, 2017 between approximately 12:15 PM and 1:15 PM, Main Street between 9th and 1st Streets will be closed for the Lakeport Elementary School Halloween parade.  The parade starts at 12:30 PM and runs south on Main Street from 7th to 1st Streets, then turns around and goes back to the starting location.  Motorists are advised to be aware of the parade route and use caution when driving in the area.  Lakeport Police and Lakeport Public Works units will be on site conducting traffic controls.  

Between 2:30 PM and 5:00 PM we expect heavy foot and vehicle traffic in the downtown area for the Lakeport Main Street Association - Trick or Treat Main Street event.

Between 4:00 PM and 9:00 PM, 19th Street west of Hartley Street and Mellor Drive between 19th and 20th Street will be closed for the Harvest Revelation Halloween event.  

Between 6:30 PM and 8:30 PM the Lakeport Kiwanis Kids Halloween Fair will be taking place at the MAC building on the Lakeport Unified School District Campuses.  Over 1000 persons are expected to attend and there will be very heavy foot and vehicle traffic adjacent to and on the school grounds.  

Between 5:00 PM and 10:00 PM we are also expecting very heavy foot (1000 persons or more) and vehicle traffic in the residential neighborhoods throughout town with the heaviest being mostly north of Eleventh Street, extending to areas around the Lakeport Unified School District Campus due to regular Trick or Treat activity.  

We are asking motorists to be extremely cautious when driving in these areas.  We also have some tips for kids and parents below:

Halloween Safety Tips For Kids.  Parents please make sure your kids stay safe out there on Halloween night.

  1. Go trick-or-treating with a grown up.
  2. Make sure your costume lets you see and hear perfectly.  You need to be able to watch and listen for cars.
  3. Make sure your costume fits.  It’s easy to trip on costumes that are too big
  4. Wear brightly colored clothing.  Put “Glow in the dark” patches or stripes on your costume so that drivers can see you.  
  5. Carry a flashlight.
  6. Don’t eat treats until you show them to your parent or guardian.
  7. Visit only people you know.
  8. Make this and every Halloween a safe and happy one.
