With the possible exception of an abundance of Waldo costumes defeating the purpose of the game “Where’s Waldo,” Madison’s Halloween weekend was a public safety and entertainment success, officials said.
Police spokesperson Joel DeSpain said arrests and major incidents for Madison’s annual Halloween celebration decreased in what police and city officials called another success.
DeSpain said 43 arrests were connected with the celebration on State Street and some surrounding side streets, a decrease from 52 arrests in 2009. Approximately 35,000 people attended the State Street event, he added.
