This year things will look a little different for Halloween. Due to COVID, some events have been canceled or changed. There is still some fun to be had on Halloween! Several Rockford area places are offering drive-thru Halloween events that allow families to get candy, see some spooky sights, and celebrate the holiday while staying safe in their cars.

All events are drive-thru only. People will not be able to get out of their cars during these events. Passengers will need to wear masks while attending these events.

Please check the links before going to an event. We do our best to stay up-to-date with changes, but last-minute cancelations are common during this time.

Email us at hello@statelinekids.com if you know of an event that we missed!
