Arroyo Grande Village Improvement Association Trick or Treat Sunday, October 31, 2012, 3 to 5 p.m. Note: this event must be confirmed.
An annual traditional Halloween event for young children, merchants in the Village give out candy and treats. Because the event has become increasingly popular, with large crowds of young children and their parents on the sidewalks and streets in the Village, the City of Arroyo Grande will be implementing special traffic control measures on Halloween. No parking will be allowed on Branch Street from Traffic Way to Mason Street between 2:30 PM and 5:30 PM on October 31. During the same hours on the same date, no parking will be allowed at the corner of Mason Street and Nelson Street to allow a safer turning movement for commercial trucks navigating around the Village. Branch Street will be closed to vehicle traffic from 2:30 PM to 5:30 PM on Halloween. The intersections and major driveways on Branch Street including Bridge Street north of Olohan Alley, Short Street, the Car Corral, and Nevada Street will also be closed to vehicle traffic during the same hours on the same date. The closures will be "hard" closures reinforced with barricades. The reason for the no parking zones and the street and driveway closures is to help ensure the safety of the excited children who will be walking throughout the Village dressed in their Halloween costumes. The detour route around the Village from 2:30 PM until 5:30 PM will be Traffic Way, Nelson Street and Mason Street
