We’re trying to figure out the safest options to celebrate Halloween this year due to the pandemic. The CDC categorized traditional trick-or-treating as a high-risk activity, so we’re trying to find safer alternatives for the kids in our lives. One business has come up with a solution for families to consider ahead of the holiday.

Lowe’s has launched a drive-through, curbside trick-or-treating event at all locations nationwide. These events will be held from 6 to 7 pm on Thursday, October 22, and Thursday, October 29. You can now visit Lowes.com/DIY to reserve a spot for Lowe's Halloween experience at your local store. At your appointed time, you can drive up to receive candy and a small pumpkin at no cost to take home. Costumes are certainly encouraged but are not required to attend.

Joe McFarland is the Executive Vice President of Lowes Stores. According to a recent press release, McFarland wants Lowe’s to be a source of joy for the communities Lowe’s serves.

"We know that customers still want to celebrate Halloween, even if the holiday may look different for us this year. While the pandemic has changed many elements of everyday life, the tradition of trick-or-treating doesn't have to be one of them," said Joe McFarland. "Our associates take great pride in serving our communities, and as we all find new ways to safely celebrate the holiday, we look forward to welcoming families to our drive-through curbside trick-or-treating events this year."

So take the kids out to grab a bag of candy and a pumpkin to kick into the Halloween spirit.
