Drive-thru Halloween events in Huntsville, Madison, and North Alabama

Drive-thru Halloween events in Huntsville, Madison, and North Alabama

There’s no denying that 2020 has been a giant dumpster fire (ooh, I think I just locked down my costume for this year) but that doesn’t mean we have to cancel everything it just means it’s going to look different. It also means each individual family needs to assess their own risk-level and weigh their choices carefully while always trying to be as low-risk as possible for the safety of the whole community. The CDC has released helpful guidelines to help families making tough decisions this year.

While you’re already in the car, be sure to take a tour of the Best Halloween Decorations in Huntsville too!

Drive-Thru Halloween Events

One decision that isn’t hard at all? Drive-thru events where your family stays in the car and wears a mask when coming within 6-feet of those outside your home. Lucky for us, there are a few of these happening in the Huntsville area and we can’t wait. Best of all? Each of the events listed below is TOTALLY FREE!
