Halloween festivities are my favorite festivities; Pumpkin carving, watching scary movies, visiting apple orchards.. all the above! But just like everything else in 2020, Halloween is going to feel very different this year. Even Harrison Blvd announced that trick-or-treating will be up to each individual house breaking Halloween tradition here in the Treasure Valley.

I used to live for trick-or-treating! It basically two of my favorite things from childhood combined - candy and playing dress up. Honestly I'd still participate in trick-or-treating as 23-year-old if it was socially acceptable.

Lowe's announced Monday that they will be offering an alternative trick-or-treating opportunity for communities. Nationwide "drive-through curbside trick-or-treating" will be taking place at Lowe's home improvement stores. On October 22 and October 29 from 6 to 7 p.m. families are invited to "drive up to receive candy and a small pumpkin at no cost to take home."

Space will be limited so starting on Saturday, October 10,  families can reserve a spot for the early Halloween events online at Lowes.com/DIY. Lowe's also said in a news release that costumes are encouraged but not required.

"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, Lowe's executive vice president of stores. "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."
