Lake Oswego plans Monster Mash Drive-Thru Spooktacular
Lake Oswego Parks and Recreation will host its sixth annual Halloween event, this time with a twist.
This year's event will be a drive-thru model due to guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as updated state guidance encouraging nontraditional trick-or-treating, event supervisor Jamie Inglis said.
"We're really excited to present this to the community. It'll be a great way to celebrate Halloween safely," she said.
The Monster Mash Drive-Thru Spooktacular will take place from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct.31
Families can download a map of the "spooktacular" stations from the Lake Oswego Parks and Recreation website and start wherever is closest to their neighborhood. Inglis said there is no set start or end point.
Participants will receive prebagged "goblin goodies" at each station.
Stations will be hosted by Parks and Recreation facilities throughout town, as well as the Lake Oswego City Library and the Westlake Fire Station. The Lake Oswego Police Department will help pass out treats at the Foothills Park station.
Inglis said all treats will be prepared to OHA restaurant guidance and all volunteers will wear face coverings.
"Safety is our top priority," Inglis said.
People are encouraged to dress in costume and decorate their vehicles.
Participation is free and open to the public.
