Chapel Hill officials say they are prepared for tonight's annual Halloween celebration on Franklin Street.
More than 300 police officers will be keeping an eye on thousands of people expected to attend the event between 9 p.m. and midnight.
Lieutenant Joshua Mecimore works for the town's police department. He says there are rules in place to help keep all the ghouls and goblins safe.
“You know, we want people to know that you can't have alcohol in the event, you can't bring alcohol out of one of the restaurants into the event,” he says.
