The City of Victoria Parks and Recreation Department is also hosting a drive-thru Halloween event at Riverside Park on Saturday, October 24th.


The following is from a press release issued by the City.

In an inversion of the traditional trunk-or-treat model, residents will drive along McCright Drive starting at the tiki statue near Riverside Golf Course to accept treats from booths set up by local businesses and organizations.

Vendors will be required to wear facial coverings and use hand sanitizer, and booths will be placed far apart from each other to promote social distancing. Anglin is encouraging vendors to come up with creative ways to distribute treats while maintaining distance. Participants must stay in their vehicles and accept treats through the windows.

Businesses and other organizations can sign up for the event by emailing Anglin at before Oct. 12.
