Police department, community group offer Halloween festivities


The Baltimore Police Department will present two Halloween haunted houses this weekend -- one at the Northern District station in Hampden and the other at the Northwestern District.

The Northern District event will take place from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. today and from 4: 30 p.m. to 9: 30 p.m. tomorrow at the historic police station at 3355 Keswick Road.

The free show features creepy creatures, trick-or-treating and a short anti-drug skit by Maryland Institute, College of Art students.

The Northwestern District, in conjunction with the Northwestern District Community Relations Council, will present its haunted house in the garage of the district station at 5271 Reisterstown Road from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. today.

Admission is 50 cents or one canned good, with proceeds used to purchase Thanksgiving Day food baskets to be distributed to needy families during the holiday season, said Sgt. Michael Baptist.

In addition to refreshments, several attractions await those who attend the haunted house, Baptist said.
