Yes, Halloween will be a little different this year. The hardest part is the kids that look so forward to it. Hillsborough County is trying to help with that by hosting a family-friendly Drive Thru Halloween Event.
The event will take place on Friday, Oct. 30 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at four county recreation centers.
The first 100 children at each location will get a “ghoulie bag” with treats and toys at the end of the route.
The events are free and will be held at the following locations:
- Northdale Park & Recreation Center, 15550 Spring Pine Drive, Tampa
- Emanuel P. Johnson Park & Recreation Center, 5855 S. 78th St., Tampa
- Keystone Park & Recreation Center, 17928 Gunn Highway, Odessa
- Ruskin Park & Recreation Center, 901 6th St. SE, Ruskin
The CDC has provided a number of safety measures adults and children can take to trick or treat more safely. You can view the CDC’s checkliston their website.
