The annual Castro mob scene features features the March of Light parade (8:30pm, www.MarchOfLight.Org ), as well as a huge, booze-free outdoor jam with multiple stages of entertainment.
No alcohol Event In 2003, Police and sheriff's deputies began cracking down on the shoulder-to-shoulder crowd, determined to avoid the chaos of Halloween 2002, when five people were stabbed and dozens were arrested for public drunkenness.
There will be 13 entry gates around Market and Castro streets. Market Street will be closed between Church and Diamond streets, and Castro Street will be closed between 16th and 19th streets. The Castro Muni subway station will close at 7 p.m. as part of the crowd control.
TRANSIT: Taking BART to 16 St and walk or catch the J-Church metro are your best transit options.
