With Halloween nearly two weeks away, communities are figuring out creative ways to have trick-or-treating in a pandemic.

Middletown Township is planning to host a free “Drive-Thru Trick or Treat Extravaganza.”

It involves families driving around the municipal building in their cars. Along the way, local businesses, township employees, and police officers will be handing out candy to children.

To keep in the Halloween spirit, Middletown is encouraging everyone should wear costumes and even decorate their vehicles.

Chick-Fil-A will also be on scene to hand out treats and have a quick dinner available for purchase.

Local businesses can use the opportunity to promote themselves while handing out treats. Entry is free for them as well.

The unique festivities are scheduled for Thursday, October 29th from 6 to 8 p.m.

There is also a township Jack-O-Lantern contest. Contestants can drop off their creations on October 28.

The winner will receive a $25 Visa gift card, plus have their pumpkin on display for the Drive-Thru. They will get it back on Friday so it is ready for Halloween night.
