The Town of Miami is pleased to announce the first Drive-up Trick-or-Treat, to be held Oct. 31 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at the Miami Veterans Park located on Sullivan St. The Town of Miami and Miami Genesis will be handing out fresh popcorn, candy apples, cotton candy and candy.
We are looking for businesses or individuals willing to participate by handing out items of their choice during this event. The town will provide a table that will be set up on the sidewalk in front of Veterans Park. Tables will be distanced, and masks will be required and enforced for anyone participating in this event. The Town of Miami hopes to get community involvement to allow the children of the community a memorable Halloween 2020.
The following streets will be closed from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Oct. 31: Cordova Ave., Inspiration Ave. (allowing access to Los Jilbertos Mexican Food) and Forest Ave. (allowing access to Burger House). The Town of Miami encourages anyone attending the Halloween event to use Plaza Ave. or Reppy Ave. south to Sullivan St., where the traffic will flow east and be directed to one lane with visible orange cones. Miami Ave. and Keystone Ave. will remain open for any traffic entering Miami and all traffic exiting this event. The town discourages anyone from walking up to the event.
The town will also host a Virtual Halloween Costume Contest from Nov. 1 through Nov. 4 at 5 p.m. Winners will be announced on Nov. 8. The Town of Miami will be accepting pictures by email at [email protected], or photos can be dropped off at the Miami Police Department or Miami Senior Center. These locations will have a designated box clearly marked for photos. The photos must have the child’s name, age, phone number and address. Anyone entering the costume contest gives consent to the Town of Miami posting photos on the town website or where deemed necessary.
