According to a recent press release, Greater Fall River Re-Creation and the City of Fall River are teaming up to host a free Halloween drive-in event later this month.
Greater Fall River Re-Creation usually hosts an annual Halloween party, but the COVID-19 pandemic has forced the group to come up with an alternate way to celebrate the holiday. Instead of a large gathering, the organization has partnered with Mayor Paul Coogan and the City of Fall River to host a drive-in movie night at Durfee High School on Friday, October 30.

Residents are invited to enjoy one of two screenings of the Halloween classic, “Hocus Pocus.”

“We know that Fall River’s families have had a strange year and that this will not be a normal Halloween,” remarked Mayor Paul Coogan. “That is why we are so excited to work together with Re-Creation to give families a safe, free night of Halloween festivity.”

The gates will open at 5 pm for the first showing at 6 pm. The gates will open at 7:45 pm for the second showing at 8:30 pm. Although entry is free, you will need a ticket to attend. If you are interested in one of these screenings, there are four ways to get a ticket.
