The Riverside Police Station is Haunted!

The Riverside Police Station is haunted!  Well, at least for a few hours on October 30th.  The Riverside Police Officers Association is gearing up for a haunted walk-through of the police station during Trunk or Treat on Community Day. 

Our officers will be transforming the interior and exterior of the police station into a spooktacular exhibit for kids to enjoy during Trunk or Treat. 

Stick around after Trunk or Treat for a free outdoor movie.  The police association will be showing "Hotel Transylvania" on a big screen just outside of the station.  We will be providing popcorn and water to the kids to enjoy with the movie.  So bring a blanket and chair and join us for Community Day from 5:30 to 8:30 on West Scott Street!

Community Day is presented courtesy of Riverside Township and the Riverside Business Association.
