With Halloween just around the corner, local cities, fire departments and police departments are working double time to create spooky yet safe activities for citizens and their children.
Alton’s fire and police department have made a collaborative effort this year for a Halloween Haunted House, according to Alton Assistant City Manager Steve Peña. Located at the old fire department off of Alton Boulevard on Mile 5, thiswill be the first time the city of Alton has a haunted house.
“Both the fire and police chief have a lot of experience from doing these types of activities in other towns,” Peña said.
Assistant Fire Chief J.J. Salinas said they have received a lot of support from the community and local businesses, including sponsors. He added the haunted house is scheduled to be open on Halloween evening from 6-10 p.m. at 207 W. Main Ave.
