A Spooktacular Drive-Thru!
For Immediate Release
October 26, 2020
Safer Halloween alternative offered in Wollaston Township
Wollaston Township is offering a Spooktackular Drive-Through on October 31st to keep ghouls and goblins safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. With a recommendation from Hastings Prince Edward Public Health to skip door to door trick-or-treating during the health crisis, the Wollaston Township Recreation Committee is offering a safer alternative for local families who still want to participate in a community celebration.
Families are invited to enjoy a drive-through experience at the Municipal Works Yard at 90 Wollaston Lake Road, starting at 4:30pm. Treats will be handed out by volunteers to those who attend.
While all gatherings involve risk, during this difficult time, the Recreation Committee is committed to offering a safer option to those who will be putting on costumes and heading out for the annual celebration of all things spooky. In consultation with Public Health, guidelines have been established for the safe preparation of loot bags and all volunteers at the event will be required to wear masks and maintain physical distance through the event. Those who are attending the event will be required to remain in their vehicles and all participants will need to be masked when loot bags are delivered to cars.
The Rec Committee reminds all participants that even if your costume has a mask, that a non-medical, fabric mask covering the nose and mouth still needs to be worn to stop the spread of COVID-19 in our community.
The free event is open to all and the Rec Committee asks that everyone use extra caution and watch for pedestrians when driving through the Hamlet of Coe Hill on Halloween.
