Cruising for Treats!

By Staff | Oct 14, 2020

The following message is from the New Martinsville Parks and Rec department for local organization that might be interested in spreading spooky cheer to local children this Halloween! If you want to take part, the application can be downloaded by clicking the button below this message.

“The New Martinsville Parks and Recreation Department will be holding a Cruise For Treats event on Howard Jeffers Drive (AKA Hydro Drive) on Sunday, October 25th from 2:00-4:00 PM.

Due to the concerns and restrictions with COVID-19, Boo at Bruce will not be held this year. We wanted to be able to offer something for the community in place of that program. After discussing the idea with the Health Department, they agreed that this is the safest way to hold such an event.

Other than those participating in the event, the road will be closed to traffic. The program will be offered, free of charge, to children ages 12 and under. The children must be driven along the route by their parents, etc., while those handing out the treats are stationed on the sides. Children are not required to pre-register.

Additional information will made available within the following weeks.

The department is now taking information from businesses, organizations, individuals, etc., who would like to hand out treats along the route. You MUST be registered on, or before, 2:00 PM Friday, October 23.

Please contact our office at 304-455-9130, or private message us on FaceBook if you would like to be involved.”
