Concerned about COVID-19? So are we!

Your family's safety is of the utmost importance to us. That's why we're taking the following precautions during the event this year:

  • Face coverings are required to enter the event and will be worn by all event staff and volunteers; social distancing and the proper donning of face coverings will be enforced by event staff.
  • Crowd size will be monitored to ensure room for distancing.
  • Candy will be handed out by volunteers wearing gloves and face coverings. No guests may reach into a bowl to collect candy.
  • We will provide markings on the ground to help promote distancing while waiting in line for games.
  • Activities and games that require contact with items will follow one of the following criteria:
    • Items will be disposable and a new set will be given to each child (ie: throwing a ball, bingo card)
    • Craft materials will be pre-packaged and provided to children individually
    • The volunteers leading the activity/game will touch the item for the children (ie: spinning a prize wheel)
    • The child will be given gloves to wear while touching the item; it will also be sanitized between each child (ie: mini golf club)

And if you're just not comfortable attending in person, that's okay too! You can drive by with your family at any time during the event to pick up a free prize bag! (supply is limited) Costumes are welcome!
