Gaslight requests extension of hours for Halloween night in Casper


CASPER, Wyo. — The Gaslight Social have requested that the City of Casper allow them to stay open two hours later than normally allowed for Halloween night, according to a memo from city staff.

The Casper City Council are set to consider approving a temporary extension of hours during their Tuesday, Oct. 20 meeting. The approval would allow all liquor license holders in the city to extend their hours on Halloween night.

If the city council approves the extension, liquor establishments would need to provide notice in writing to Casper Police Chief Keith McPheeters.

Bars are ordinarily required to close at 2 am in Casper. The Municipal Code allows the city council to modify the hours of operation allowed for liquor establishments for up to four days each year.

City staff explain in the memo that the last time the council approved an extension of hours was for the 2017 eclipse which fell on a Sunday.

Since clocks fall back at 2 am on Nov. 1, city staff explain that the two hour time extension would allow liquor establishments to remain open until 3 am on Nov. 1.
