LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – For the first time, Mosey Down Main Street wrapped up an hour early Saturday.
This month’s Mosey came to an end at 11 p.m. instead of midnight.
The Lafayette Board of Works approved the change last month. The switch was made to help cut down on some of the fights and other crime that was taking place after dark at the Seventh Street intersection.
Co-founder of the Mosey, Steve Bultinck, said they want to maintain the event’s family-friendly atmosphere. He said that everyone, including the vendors, support the change.
“The vendors, I mean, most of them kind of like it because they like to be home by midnight opposed to still being here at midnight,” said Bultinck. “So, it has been very positively received. We still will have security here until midnight which is good because we kinda help them get the vendors out of here.”
Road closures for future events will begin at 3:30 p.m. instead of the previous time of 4 p.m.
The next Mosey Down Main Street will be Saturday, Aug. 9.
