“Beach Boo Drive Thru”

COVID-19 has created many unique challenges for the children of our community and with Halloween rapidly approaching, the Flagler Beach Police Department has revamped our annual “Trunk or Treat” event. This year we’re proud to announce that we’ll be hosting a socially distanced Halloween event, entitled; the “Beach Boo Drive Thru”.

This year’s Halloween event is scheduled for Saturday, October 24, 2020 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Wickline Park in Flagler Beach. This event is open to all children of our community!

The Halloween themed, pandemic precautionary friendly event will require children to stay seated inside their parent’s vehicles, while members of the Police Department and Fire Department will be handing out candy in individual safety bags. Wickline Park will be decorated in the spirit of the fall holiday and members of the Police Department will be dressed in Halloween costumes; along with face-masks. This community event is focused on providing the children of or community with the opportunity to participate in a Halloween event that is safe for them, their parents and the members of the Police Department.

Traffic: Traffic wishing to attend the October 24th event will enter the Wickline Center parking lot from South Flagler Avenue. Wickline Park is located right next to our City Library; 315 7th Street South. Vehicle traffic entering the parking lot will travel south, and when approaching the pavilion, they’ll be contacted on the passenger side of their vehicles by members of the Police & Fire Department. Individual bags of candy will be handed through open passenger side windows to children and/or parents, and we hope kids dress in their Halloween best! Once the children receive their Halloween treat, vehicles will make a U-turn and exit the parking lot onto 7th Street South. The Police Department will be utilizing electronic variable message boards to assist with directing vehicular traffic toward Wickline Park.

Candy Donations: Unopened bagged candy donations for the event will be gratefully accepted. If you’d like to donate candy, please feel free to contact Ms. Dee Ramirez by phone at (386) 517-2020 Ext. 309.

We’re looking forward to a “Spooktacular” time on October 24th and we hope that the children of our community enjoy this year’s unique, Halloween event. If you have any questions about the #BeachBooDriveThru please feel free to contact Chief Doughney at (386) 517-2024.
