Be part of this years amazing Halloween 14 Block Party to be held along Main St between Eskbank St and Bridge St during Friday October 31 2014.
Building on the success of the inaugural event Halloween event in 2013, the section of Main St between Bridge St and Eskbank St will be closed between 6 pm on Thursday 30 October through to 6 am Saturday November 1 2014. This will enable set up of the event and allow the anticipated large crowds to gather and celebrate the Halloween festivities without conflict with passing traffic.
“Last years Halloween event was an extremely successful promotion for Lithgow’s Main St with so many people of all ages parading along the street in amazing costumes,” said Lithgow City Council Mayor, Councillor Maree Statham. “The closure of this section of the street to vehicular traffic will make this years Halloween 14 Block Party theme an especially fantastic experience for the whole community.”
The Halloween 14 Block Party will see this section of Main St transformed in to a temporary “parklet” space during Halloween Day. Tables and chairs for outdoor dining will be set up in the street before it turns into the open air event space at night complete with stage, entertainment, music, Halloween best dressed parade, light shows and scary creatures made by local artists.
“Council officers will be working with individual traders along this section of Main St to maximise the opportunities to become involved in the event and to minimise any disruption to their business activities during the street closure. At the end of the day ensuring the safety of the community is paramount during the period of the event bump in, delivery and bump out,” said Matt Brewster Councils Economic Development Officer, “As the event grows each year further sections of Main St could well be closed to vehicles subject to resources and the level of business and community support”
