Written by Ryan Gray on October 24, 2021
BLOOMINGTON Ill.- An event that showcased during the pandemic is making its way back to Bloomington.
Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts Athletics Program Manager Neal McKenry mentioned how last year’s drive-thru format and will remain the same for this year’s event.
“This year we just decided to keep it as a drive thru. Parents drive their kids through. Parents get to look at the cars–kids get a bag of candy at the end. We work with one of city of Bloomington community resource officers–he’s there helping passing out candy as well,” said McKenry.
McKenry talked about what vehicles were at the event last year and then what is accepted for this upcoming event.
“It’s up to the classic car owner, we’re not picky. In the past, there’s been kinda from the 50, 60’s era but I mean we have some 70, 80 cars too. If someone has a really nice car that’s just a couple years old they could feel free to bring that out as well. Motorcycles, trucks, anything is welcome,” said McKenry.
Other events are taking place for the Halloween season in the area. McKenry goes on to explain how attention is drawn to the community.
“I think the city of Bloomington puts on several Halloween related things. Some are either taken this week or next week. So, we have events at the zoo, events at the ice arena, or this event. So, having all these things brings a variety of people and just gives the community something to do,” said McKenry.
The event will be held on October 29 at Miller Park between 3-5 p.m.
