Naked Pumpkin Run, Boulder Mall Crawl: Cops ready if they make a Halloween comeback

Last year at this time, Boulder Police were on high alert for fear that the annual Naked Pumpkin Run and a revival of the Boulder Mall Crawl on Halloween would lead to chaos. Two Mall Crawl organizers even received a personal visit from Boulder's police chief.

In the end, the events were relatively low-key. But the BPD will be ready for trouble this weekend.
