Halloween in the CWE 2014

October 21, 2014

Dear CWE Residents,

The annual CWE Halloween celebration is just a few days away. We hope you will join in the festivities.

This year’s events are scheduled for Saturday, October 25 and include a Children’s Parade and Entertainment, Trick or Treating, a Dog Parade and Costume Contest and the Adult Halloween Party and Costume Contest. And new this year, the Central West End Association is hosting their annual 5K run at 8:30am.

The Annual CWE Halloween event is a wonderful showcase of the neighborhood and a great community event. At the same time, we recognize the challenge it can create for residents. We truly appreciate your patience and understanding.

Careful planning and attention to detail have been given to ensure a safe and successful event for visitors and residents alike. In addition to the usual coverage provided by the 5th District Police, we have also hired extra off duty police officers to patrol nearby residential streets.

Below please find a schedule of events along with street closure details. Please contact us if you have any questions and/or concerns. Your feedback is extremely valuable.

Thank you!
