Mayor Barlow announces Free Drive Thru Trick or Treating at Oswego Speedway
Mayor Billy Barlow announced today the City of Oswego, in collaboration with the Oswego Speedway, Lighthouse Lanes and Iheart Oswego is hosting a free “drive thru trick or treating” Halloween event at the Oswego Speedway on Saturday, October 31st at 1:00pm. The event allows for safe trick or treating during the COVID-19 pandemic. Vehicles will be allowed to enter the speedway from City Line Road and circle the track as local businesses hand out candy as cars drive through and around the track. Attendees must stay in their vehicles. Decorative inflatables, music and decorations will line the drive through area as vehicles make their way around the track.
“Our Drive Thru Trick or Treating event is another exciting event created by the Oswego City-County Youth Bureau to adjust to social distancing guidelines in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We want to continue providing Oswego’s youth with fun activities and events despite the difficult times we’re living through,” said Mayor Billy Barlow. “I appreciate the hard work from the youth bureau staff and the efforts they’ve made to design socially distanced events and want to thank the Oswego Speedway and our partners for working together to put this on for our community,” Barlow said.
Jennifer Losurdo of the Oswego City- County Youth Bureau said, “Our Drive Thru Trick or Treating event will give our children and families something to look forward to at Halloween. Due to COVID-19, some families may not participate in Halloween this year, but our event can provide a safe and enjoyable alternative.”
Tunes for Tots will kick off their annual Toy Drive at the Trick or Treat event for all the children of Oswego County. This year more than ever our children are in need around our community, so please bring a new unwrapped non-violent toy and help support our children while we sweeten things up in return. “No child should ever go without” said Mike Coon, coordinator of Tunes for Tots.
