After careful consideration, the City of Brighton has decided to change the location of Car-nival Palooza on Oct. 24 from Elmwood Cemetery to the Brighton Sports Complex located at 1111 Judicial Center Drive.
Since announcing the drive-thru trunk-or-treat event back in early September, the City received multiple concerns from the public about hosting the event at the cemetery. Although the City also received positive feedback, we want to be respectful to all concerns.
The City’s initial choice of Elmwood Cemetery was largely due to the size of the area with roads that could easily accommodate one-way traffic for the drive-thru. It was the only park in the City large enough to accommodate the event without shutting down roads. In addition, staff created guidelines for the event to be respectful to those buried at the cemetery. Initially, the Adult Sports Complex was booked, but has since become available.
The City appreciates the public sharing its concerns and prioritizes public opinion, which is the reason behind the decision to change the event’s location.
