You know what to do. The City of Marathon and law enforcement officials are bringing out the Halloween plan they know works: a one-way circuit around the neighborhood behind the airport, with central streets closed to vehicular traffic.
“On Halloween, the traffic will be directed in a one-way loop on the edges of the neighborhood for safety reasons and some streets will be closed to vehicular traffic after 6 p.m.,” said Monroe County Sheriff Office’s Capt. Don Hiller.
Merrymakers can enter on Harbor Drive, circle around to Gulfstream Boulevard and exit on Dolphin Drive. The streets of Marlin, Tuna, Shark, Porpoise and Bonito will be closed to vehicles.
Parking rules will be relaxed for Aviation Boulevard, but there’s plenty of room to park on Gulfstream Boulevard towards the back of the neighborhood and fronting the bay, as well.
• One, if you wish to preserve expensive or elaborate costumes, or small innocent children, leave before the shaving cream comes out. • Two, be courteous about parking, whether it’s along the bicycle path on Aviation or in the neighborhood. • Three, be courteous and respectful when the neighborhood policeman tells you it’s time to go home; nothing good ever happens after midnight.
