Police will be closing off Pacific Avenue and its sidestreets Wednesday night for the party and parade that has taken over downtown Santa Cruz on Halloween night.
The whole downtown will be a "safety enhancement zone," which means that all fines will be tripled for the night, many as high as $1,000.
