This event, Ghost Talk, is a long-standing PCA tradition that raises funds to help put on family theater programming and provide over $15,000 in youth scholarships each year.
Tri-City DUI Task Force:
One last thing you should know is that the Prescott Police Department will participate in DUI saturation patrols during the entire weekend as part of the Tri-City DUI Task Force.
Extra enforcement will occur on Saturday October 30th, 2021.
The Tri-City DUI Task Force will continue to conduct high profile details throughout the rest of the year. It’s important to remember that driving impaired is never worth the monetary loss or the physical and emotional devastation that can be caused by simply making that bad choice to drink and drive.
Please drive sober, designate a driver, or call a taxi to stay safe.
