Most communities are trying to make it possible for kids to enjoy Halloween. This year just about everything has been a challenge. Fortunately, as the year has gone on we have been able to figure out clever ways to enjoy traditional fun with some untraditional ideas. The creation of drive thru trick or treating has meant that lots of Hudson Valley kids will be able to fill those goodies bags this Halloween. What would be funny is if we enjoy it so much we keep the drive thru tradition post COVID.
