Creepy “It” Balloon Tied to Sewer Grate in Cloquet 13 Sep 17

(Learfield News Service/Cloquet, MN) — Police say someone tied a single red balloon to a sewer grate in Cloquet.

The balloon found over the weekend is a creepy reference to the Stephen King classic “It.”

A reboot of the horror movie based on King’s book has just been released.

Pranksters have been tying red balloons to sewer grates across the country.

The Cloquet Police Department posted photos on Facebook, with a caption that the department had been keeping the streets safe from scary clowns since 1904.
