TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — On Saturday, October 31, the Leon County Sheriff’s Office will partner with Second Harvest of the Big Bend, Whole Child Leon, and other non-profit community partners for a Halloween event at Governor’s Square Mall.

The Halloween Trick-or-Treat Drive-Thru celebration will have decorated displays, bags of candy and toys for kids, a food distribution, and a virtual costume contest leading up to the event.

With Second Harvest increasing their efforts to make sure that Big Bend area families have some type of food security, the decision to give out 1,000 boxes of food for the ALL-IN LEON trick or treat parade came easy.

"We at Second Harvest felt that this was an opportunity to serve families and we're really interested in being more holistic this year," said Monique Van Pelt, the CEO of Second Harvest of the Big Bend.

The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the vacant parking lot outside the former Sears department store and will follow COVID-19 health guidelines.

Event-goers are asked to wear face coverings, stay inside their vehicles, and follow the parking lot's traffic pattern for public safety and public health.
