Looks like the Boulder Police Department largely succeeded at preventing a full-scale revival of the Boulder Mall Crawl and throwing a towel over the annual Naked Pumpkin Run. BPD reps haven't returned multiple interview requests this morning -- but in the wee hours of November 1, the department issued a press release boasting that a crowd estimated at 4,000 had been generally well-behaved, leading to no major disturbances.
Jonathan Sackheim, one of the two men behind an aborted Facebook campaign to kickstart the Mall Crawl, seems pleased as well. He hasn't responded to interview requests, either, but on the aforementioned Facebook page, now dubbed "Don't Taze Me, Br09," he writes, "Halloween night on Pearl St. was a big, fat, fantastic success. Life is good and see you again next year."
The photos on the page certainly look as if everyone had a great time. Check out some highlights below:
