If you're trying to find something fun and safe to do this year for Halloween since it's been highly advised for your kids not to go trick-or-treating, look no further. The City of Santa Clarita just announced that they are setting up two Halloween-themed events, the “Haunted Highway” and “Scarecrow Alley.” According to a statement from the city, “This spooky, family-friendly experience allows you to celebrate all the tricks and treats of Halloween from the comfort and safety of your own vehicle.” Haunted Highway is a contactless drive-thru Halloween experience, while Scarecrow Alley will be a competition for individuals, non-profit organizations and businesses to “design and decorate a family-friendly scarecrow that will be displayed for the event.”
When you show up to the event and check in, you'll start at Scarecrow Alley and continue to Haunted Highway where you'll enjoy “immersive scenes from their vehicle.”
“As guests travel from scene to scene, a story will come to life through set pieces, props, live actors, lighting, sound and visual effects. During the event, tune your radio to the designated station to hear stereo sound and music synced to the action.”
Guests are required to stay in their vehicles at all times and must wear a face covering if they choose to roll down their window. Each car will also receive a single to-go bag filled with Halloween candy, crafts and more at the end of the event. The whole experience is about 15 minutes and is free, but you must reserve your time slot. Spots are available for Thursday, October 29, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., and registration opens tomorrow (9/17) at 5 p.m. on a first-come, first-served basis. Both Haunted Highway and Scarecrow Alley will be at the George A. Caravalho Santa Clarita Sports Complex, located at 20870 Centre Pointe Parkway. You'll be able to register for your time slot here.
