Drive-Thru trick or treat event to take place on October 30 from 6pm-8pm
Harnett County announced a Halloween drive-thru trick or treat event, Halloween Drive-Boo, on Friday, October 30 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM in the parking lot of the Harnett County Courthouse.
This event allows for participants to adhere to COVID-19 guidelines and practice social distancing for a fun, safe Halloween.
“With COVID-19 cancelling many traditional Halloween activities this year, County staff wanted to provide an opportunity for families to participate in Halloween while being safe and practicing social distancing,” stated Harnett County Community Relations Coordinator Ashley Deans. “We are excited to host an alternative way for families to enjoy Halloween and participate in a fun trick or treat event.”
Vehicles will enter the drive-thru event at the entrance of the Courthouse on W. Cornelius Harnett Boulevard in Lillington and follow a designated route through the Courthouse parking lot. County staff from 12 departments, including Health Department, Veterans Services, Tax Department, General Services, Solid Waste, Soil & Water Conservation District, Sheriff's Office, Emergency Services, Department of Social Services, Parks & Recreation, and the Public Library will have Halloween themed stations and hand out pre-packaged Halloween goodie bags to participants. Goodie bags will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis. All individuals will be required to stay in their vehicles during the event.
Families are encouraged to dress up in costumes. Halloween costume masks will not block potentially infectious droplets, so face coverings are recommended to be worn.
