Claremont's Drive-Boo Halloween 2020

The Claremont Parks and Recreation Department, Chamber of Commerce and Riverbank Church have been hard at work preparing an alternative to the traditional Hallowesta event on Pleasant Street. Due to the pandemic and the large number of participants the Hallowesta event draws, this year’s version will be a drive-thru event held at Monadnock Park from 3 to 6 PM on Saturday, October 31, 2020 with participation from local individuals, businesses and nonprofits.  This will be a fun thrill for the entire family with treats and spooky surprises throughout your journey. 

Gates open for this event at 3 PM through the Broad Street Entrance to Monadnock Park Only. Participants will then make their way through the park with many decorated spaces and surprises along your journey.  There will be 2 candy drop locations where you will receive the treat bags for all the trick-or-treaters in the vehicle via a special social distancing delivery system designed by Claremont Makerspace.
If you are looking to get into the Halloween Spirt beyond trick or treating, we would love for you to be involved in this event. We are looking for local businesses, organizations, sports teams, families, and individuals to be involved.
1. Set up, decorate and host a 10x10 space in a family-friendly Halloween theme. 
2. Donate to our candy drive. Donations are being accepted at the Claremont Savings Bank Community Center through Friday, October 23rd.
If you are interested or would like more details on how to help, we ask that you please fill out the quick 2 minute survey below or call the Parks and Recreation Department at (603) 542-7019. We ask that all submissions are in by Wednesday, October 28th.
