11 Stateline-Area Drive-Thru Halloween Events to Take the Kids To In 2020
My kids have been talking about Halloween for MONTHS. What they're going to dress up as; planning their trick-or-treat route in our neighborhood; where they're going to store all their candy; you name it, they have a plan for it.
In the last few weeks I have been trying to gently prepare them for the possibility of no trick-or-treating this year. We've discussed how a lot of our Halloween traditions will look a little different. Thankfully, the City of Rockford finally announced that trick-or-treating WILL BE happening this year, but I wanted to find more Halloween for them to enjoy this year.
That's when I came across an article on statelinekids.com that answered everything I was hoping to find! Here's their list of 11 drive-thru Halloween events happening in the Stateline-are this month and the fun starts this weekend!
