The Baltimore County Department of Recreation & Parks hosted its first “Boo Thru” event on Oct. 23 at the North Point Government Center.

Well over 400 cars boo’ed their way through the North Point Government Center event.

It was supposed to end at 8 p.m., but vehicles were allowed to enter until 8:15.

At the point, several rec council staffers collected candy from the participants so they could give handfuls to each of the kids that were in the cars waiting in line, but were too late to enter.

While intended to be a yearly event, the “Boo Thru” was started to provide a safe, enjoyable alternative for the children in our community to enjoy the Halloween experience during the coronavirus pandemic.

Local organizations and businesses were invited to bring a tent and set up on the parking lots at the Regional Community Centers in the North, West, Northeast, and Southeast areas of the county.

Areas were socially distanced for the event, with parents driving through the parking lot so their children could trick or treat at each tent, while safely remaining in their car.

Face covering and gloves were worn by the person who approached the cars, handing out treats.

The photos on this page from the event were submitted by members of the Baltimore County Department of Recreation and Parks.
