Cars are asked to pull up under the lit marquee. where they will be welcomed by costumed staff members and volunteers who will use creative resources for fully contactless trick or treating.

For a little extra fun, you can dress up your vehicle for a Car Costume Contest. The top two winners will be announced via Facebook and Instagram on November 1 and will receive some cool prizes. Every ghost and goblin gets a bag of Halloween candy, and some of them will include surpise gifts. Not too shabby!
