PITTSBURG, Ks. – COVID-19 continues to alternate the way people celebrate and Halloween in the 4-State area is no exception.
That could be seen in Pittsburg Friday at a trunk-or-treat event put on by the city’s parks and recreation department which was a strictly drive through affair.
But the event at the Don Gutteridge Sports Complex didn’t happen until the Crawford County Health Department signed off on safety measures.
“Everybody’s been very creative about making safer ways to celebrate and this certainly is one of them. I’m just pleased as I can be that we’re working together,” said Crawford County Health Department Director Janis Goedeke.
At a drive through trunk-or-treat, the kids have it easy.
Everybody was required to stay in their seats while representatives for various organizations put goody bags, candies, and other treats in the passing vehicles.
The entire process was contactless and all the kids had to worry about was showing off their cool costumes!
