Happy Halloween, Dirty Sixth

Wednesday, October 31, 2018 by Elizabeth Pagano

Today is Halloween. In the Austin tradition (and in the interest of good sense), Sixth Street will be closed by 6:00 p.m. from Brazos to the Interstate 35 Frontage Road, with cross streets closed between Fifth and Seventh streets. In addition, downtown I-35 exit and entrance ramps may be closed, depending on traffic. In a press release about the festivities, the Austin Police Department took the opportunity to remind everyone that:

  • No illegal weapons of any type will be allowed. Anyone with illegal items will be subject to arrest and the property is subject to seizure.
  • Open containers of alcohol are prohibited on Sixth Street.
  • Glass containers are prohibited on Sixth Street.

Another reminder: Halloween is a no-refusal weekend. Have fun, everyone!
