Complaints about cruising and traffic back-ups resulted in Mishawaka Police being called to the W. McKinley Avenue between Grape Road and Hickory Road late Friday night, April 24.
Officers arrived on scene to find heavy traffic congestion and 100s of cars in the parking lots.
Due to the large number of vehicles, responding officers waited for more officers to arrive on scene, called for barricades to be delivered and then cleared the parking lots and barricaded the entrances.
It took approximately 30 minutes to clear the parking lots.
The Mishawaka Police Department is discouraging large gatherings like Friday night’s which they say violate the social distancing and stay at home orders in place by Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb.
