Halloween drive-thru coming to New West for kids

What's happening Around town
Trick or treating may look a little different this Halloween because of COVID-19, but local businesses are trying to make sure kids can still have a fun (and safe) night out.

The Sapperton Business Association is hoping to ensure kids can enjoy themselves on Halloween night – safely.

Guy Ciprian of Savi Integrated Marketing said the association hopes to finds some community partners willing to support kids on Halloween night at a trick-or-treat drive-thru. He said the Braid StrEAT Experience, a food truck drive-thru that’s been donating partial proceeds to the Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation, has been so successful that it’s been extended to Nov.  1. 

“On Halloween night we are adding a special FREE trick-or-treat drive-thru from 5 to 9 p.m., offering a safe way to trick-or-treat from the safety of a family vehicle,” he said.

 According to Ciprian, there are two ways for community groups to participate in the event.

One is by providing a cash donation or purchasing and donating candy/treats. A second option is to set up a branded canopy tent (or something resembling one) in the drive-thru and hand out prepackaged treats to the vehicles who have children in them. 

“Currently we have six food trucks who are participating and would like to add as many additional community partners as possible,” he said in an email to the Record. “There is no cost to participate except the cost of making sure your group is masked and gloved and has plenty of candy to hand out.  All booths will be physical distanced to allow for a safe operation.”
