Oak Lane to host Costume Caravan for community children and families

From: Student Affairs

On Sunday, Oct. 25, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., Virginia Tech Fraternity and Sorority Life and the Panhellenic Council invite community families with children to participate in the Oak Lane Costume Caravan.

We encourage participants to dress in costume, decorate their car, and drive through the loop of Oak Lane during this event. Along the route, fraternity and sorority houses will be decorated for Halloween and students from Virginia Tech fraternities and sororities will stand in costume to wave at the families and children driving through the loop. All Virginia Tech students will be wearing face coverings and will remain 6 feet apart, and there will be no physical contact or direct exchange of candy or other goodies along the drive-through.

At the end of the route, each child will receive a pre-packaged bag of nut-free individually wrapped candy and treats through a special contact-less delivery system directly to their vehicle.

All adult participants (drivers and passengers) are asked to wear face coverings throughout the event, and everyone must remain in their vehicle at all times. Volunteers and staff working the event will be wearing face coverings and appropriate personal protective equipment and will wash or sanitize hands regularly. Anyone who is experiencing symptoms, has tested positive for COVID-19, or who has been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 should not attend this event.
