Iowa‘s Muscatine County Conservation Board will hold “Halloween Magic in Motion” on Friday from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., a report said.

The event is a drive-through Halloween experience for families to enjoy. It will be held at the Saulsbury Bridge Recreation Area Campground located at 2007 Saulsbury Road in Muscatine.

The event began in 2020 to provide a secure and socially-distanced alternative to the Conservation Board’s regular Halloween Nature Walk.  Instead of the informational skits and stations that the walk used to host, visitors now drive through the camp’s Halloween decorations designed by the campers who stay at the park.

With every space at the campground being filled, Naturalist Michelle Berns said she hopes this year’s drive-thru festival will be more impressive and better than last year.

“This year, we’re partnering with the Muscatine Y,” Berns said. “They usually do their Halloween at the Y event, but with the pandemic protocol, they can’t do that this year. So they’re going to partner with us for some of the displays in-between the campsites.”

Similar to last year, the first 500 children (ages two to twelve) who will attend will be given a complimentary basket of treats. In addition, there’s a suggested donation of $10 per vehicle, which will be donated directly to Muscatine Food Pantry and the Muscatine Humane Society.

Berns explained that, unlike last year’s event, the Conservation Board will not accept canned food or other items for donations.
