Happy Halloween week, Baltimore! This week is sure to be a wild, sugar-soaked one with the spooky holiday on Tuesday. But there are a handful of other events to keep you entertained, even if trick-or-treating isn’t on your list. Here’s a look at what’s happening this week:

Halloween season is known to bring out the mischief in a community, which naturally puts police on edge. But in the city, while police have been keeping a close eye out for trouble this week, they’re also doubling up on making Halloween fun for the community.
