Drive-Thru Boo - Sponsored by Kiwanis
Updated: Jul 20, 2022
The Saturday before Halloween, Oct. 24, will offer “Drive-through Boo” from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Brit Spaugh Park. This replaces the annual Halloween Parade, sponsored by the Great Bend Kiwanis Club, said project chair Amanda Urban.
There will not be an evening Zoo Boo this year.
The drive-through parade will start at 19th and Morton Street and vehicles will proceed to the Morton Street entrance into the park, snaking to the east around the pool parking lot and then back so cars will exit on Williams Street (at 19th and Williams). Kids are invited to wear their costumes and have their parents drive to stations in the park where volunteers will hand out treats. Motorists will stay in their vehicles.
“During this uncertain time ... Kiwanis feels strongly that the community needs a bit of ‘regular,” Urban said. “We have been planning and talking to city officials to make the safest plan possible for our community without canceling the event. Kiwanis, with the help of city officials, determined the use of Brit Spaugh’s driving path for a car parade would be our best bet. We plan to set up booths along the parade route, handing out candy to cars with kids in them.”
