Halloween will be a little different in 2020, for sure.
In an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19, many neighborhoods across the Triad have chosen to ban trick-or-treating this year. Residents across our area are being asked to have no-contact options for the kids, or not pass out candy at all.
Personally, we will be watching Beetlejuice on an outdoor projector screen in my sister's backyard with two other families. The kids will be in costume. We'll have pizza and cupcakes and candy. Even in my sister's backyard, we'll social distance while we watch the movie. We usually trick-or-treat in my parent's neighborhood, but this year their HOA discouraged the tradition. This small, outdoor gathering on Halloween night will be perfect for us.
If you choose to go out, there are many outdoor, organized community events across the Triad. Costume up, grab your facemask, and be sure to social distance. Several of these events are drive thru; you don't even have to get out of your car!
No matter what you choose to do, make this year memorable for your kids. What do you have planned?

MSFD Annual Trunk or Treat
Mineral Springs Vol Fire and Rescue, 1338 Old Hollows Rd, Winston-Salem
It is time for our highly anticipated Trunk or Treat. While 2020 has been a year and we still can't formally host an indoor Trick or Treat as the community has grown accustomed to, we are still going to give back to the community. With that said we will be hosting a Drive Thru Trick or Treat. We will still have some of the traditional decorations to give a smaller scale drive thru experience, the ghouls will be watching as you pass through, and you will be getting your candy before leaving the parking lot. We look forward to seeing you this year and really look forward to being able to greet you face to face again next year.
