Have a Healthy and Happy Halloween with Safety Guidance

Halloween is coming up, but it will look different than years past because, you know, the COVID-19 pandemic.

Johnson County Public Health and other experts caution that traditional trick-or-treating is riskier than alternatives; although interactions door-to-door are typically quick, they usually involve close and frequent contact, the conditions that spread SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. Often, many kids and families gather at doors or on sidewalks, and the more households they visit, the greater chance that germs are spread and linger. Here are some ways to keep yourself, your kids and your community healthy.

Free Drive-in Movies to Spook Up Your Halloween Week

Thanks to GEICO Careers, enjoy a Halloween-themed movie from your car at the Colony Pumpkin Patch–for free!

What’s Playing

  • Wednesday, Oct. 28: Monsters, Inc.
  • Thursday, Oct. 29: Hocus Pocus

Showtime is at 7 p.m. each night at the Colony Pumpkin Patch, located at 2780 Front St. The grass lot will open beginning at 6:30 p.m. Audio will be broadcasted on an FM station to car radios.

No concessions will be available, but you are welcome to bring your own food and drink. Alcoholic beverages are prohibited.

Regular Colony Pumpkin Patch activities will not be open during the drive-in movies.

How to Reserve a Spot

Registration will open at 12 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 14.

Although free, registration is required for this event to control capacity and maintain social distancing between vehicles. Attendees arriving on foot will not be permitted. All ticket holders must arrive in a vehicle.

Reserve a parking spot through Eventbrite by claiming a ticket for the date/movie you plan to attend. You only need to reserve a spot for your vehicle, not for each attendee in the vehicle. The number of attendees within a vehicle should not exceed the number of seatbelts.

Parking spots will not be pre-assigned. Cars will be directed by staff to park in the order they arrive.

All vehicles parked at the pumpkin patch when the patch closes at 6 p.m. will be asked to leave the lot until it opens again for the movie at 6:30 p.m.

Keeping Our Community Healthy

This is a COVID-conscious event. To help all of our attendees feel comfortable, the following procedures will be in place:

  • Each showing is limited to 100 vehicles. Upon arrival, attendees will need to present their ticket (print out or phone).
  • Vehicles will park in front of markers on grass, to provide 10 feet of distance between vehicles.
  • No concessions will be available, but you are welcome to bring your own food.

Additionally, attendees are expected to adhere to the following rules or may be asked to leave:

  • Wear a mask if you choose to watch the movie outside of your vehicle, while walking to and using the portable toilets, and when interacting with event staff, volunteers, or attendees outside of your household.
  • Maintain at least six feet of social distance between parties, if outside vehicle.
