Fairbanks Boy Scouts host Halloween drive through haunted trail
FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - COVID-19 hasn’t put a stop to Halloween celebration in Fairbanks, as the local Boy Scouts of America host a haunting event.
This year throughout Fairbanks, different groups are finding festive alternatives to trick-or-treating. The Boy Scouts of America Midnight Sun Council will be hosting a spooky drive-through haunted trail this weekend starting on Saturday the 17th at the Fairbanks Ice Art Park as a preview to this year’s dancing lights exhibit.
Robert Stewart of the Midnight Sun Council says the Boy Scouts want to provide a safe Halloween alternative for the community.
“We kind of saw how the Golden Days Reverse Parade went and thought, in this time of COVID restrictions and other kinds of things going on, this would be a great way to get the families out in our community, be able to do some of those Halloween activities that they like to do normally while staying safe, and also promoting scouting and getting our scouts out there to have a good time and raise some money for our local scouts as well,” said Stewart.
