Dear Community Hero,
The week of March 16th turned the world upside down. Since then, a staggering amount of beloved events have been cancelled. With the holiday season quickly approaching, our goal is to provide a series of free, family-oriented community events, but in a safe manner. In order to do so, we will need your help.
On Saturday, October 24th, “Halloween at Howarth” will not be cancelled. Rather than walking around to various locations at Howarth Park, we will host a drive-thru event from 1-4pm, where families can enjoy some spooky and fun Halloween scenes, participate in a scavenger hunt, take a photo of the Howarth Park train with some famous characters, and receive a goodie bag…all without leaving the comfort and safety of their own vehicles.
We are reaching out to our community heroes for support. We are in need of items (candy, toys or activity pages) to fill up to one thousand goodie bags. Promotional items can be added with these as well. We are also seeking companies and organizations to decorate and host a Halloween scene (approximately 10’x10’ or canopy sized), which will be lined along the inner parking spaces of the Howarth Park upper parking lot. For those providing live-action scenes with more than one person from different households, we require that participants wear facial coverings, with a maximum of two per booth. If you are really feeling in the “spirit” of Halloween and can provide both an item for the goodie bags and a scene, that would be amazing!
For questions or to participate, please email Recreation Coordinator, Nicole Lowery, at [email protected], or call (707) 543-3298. Please respond no later than Friday, October 16. It is said that it takes a village to raise a child; it will certainly take a community to save the holidays. We hope you will be able to participate with us in order to create a safe, fun and fa-BOO-lous socially-distanced experience for our community.
