With Covid-19 still present, it’s no secret that holidays might be done a little differently this year—especially since the CDC advises that traditional trick-or-treating can be high-risk for spreading the virus.

The City of Tamarac Parks and Recreation Department is trying to adapt—hosting a drive-in spooky movie night, where they’ll be screening Disney’s “The Haunted Mansion,” and, most recently, by announcing a Halloween Haunt.

The event will be in a drive-thru format, where attendees will drive through the decorated parking lot and collect a bag of treats and crafts.

In addition to collecting candy from the safety of their cars, those who attend will also be greeted by a DJ and spooky characters.

Everyone must stay in their vehicles for the duration of the event.

It will take place on Friday, October 23, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Tamarac Sports Complex, located at 9901 NW 77 Street.

For more information, call (954) 597-3674 of visit the Tamarac Parks and Recreation Facebook page.
