Working with COVID challenges, Kodiak plans for Halloween

The Kodiak Chamber of Commerce will still be holding their annual Downtown Trick-or-Treat, albeit with a few modifications for COVID-19.

Staff from participating businesses will have to wear masks and gloves, place candy directly into trick-or-treaters bags, and must follow social distancing. A list of participating businesses is online on the Chamber’s Facebook page.

The downtown Trick or Treat will be held downtown Friday, October 30th from 3:30 p.m. to 5:00p.m. The fun doesn’t end then however- immediately afterwards, KMXT will hold a Pumpkin Parade fundraiser.

This week’s Talk of the Rock featured Amelia Egle, Pam Foreman and Mike Wall from KMXT discussing the Pumpkin Parade.

The parade will be drivable exclusively and will be entirely socially distanced.

To participate, one need only bring a decorated pumpkin to the KMXT station October 30th between 9am and 4pm.

KMXT’s Pam Foreman and Mike Wall explained on last week’s Talk of The Rock.

Pam:

We’ll direct traffic onto Egan Way. So you’ll go past the high schools painted rock and then we’ll have pumpkins along their pumpkins in the KMXT yard and along that way to the library where they’re going to have spooky music playing and all kinds of cool stuff. And then on out to…

Mike:

 So the pumpkins aren’t actually parading The people are parading

Pam:

No. Well, yes, the people in cars are parading. So trying to keep it COVID safe.

KMXT members will have the opportunity to pick up a pumpkin from KMXT in the meantime. Anyone interested in paying the steeply-discounted $20 membership fee will also be able to receive a pumpkin.

The drive-through parade will run from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Prizes will also be awarded.

After the Pumpkin Parade, Cheryl Nugent will be hosting a special Halloween radio show which will feature many classic anthems of the spooky season, including the “Monster Mash.”

Her program will run from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. after the Pumpkin Parade, on Friday the 30th.
