Freaky Friday Drive-Thru Boo offers safe Halloween fun for the community

The popular Freaky Friday Fright Nite is transitioning to Freaky Friday Drive-Thru Boo from 5-7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 30. Participants are invited to trick-or-treat in their cars on Jamestowne Blvd. from Campbell Station Road to Village Green Parkway. Costumes and festive attire are encouraged, as always, and local businesses, community groups and Town of Farragut volunteers will hand out treats and prizes. The biggest change, aside from being a drive through event, is that participants must preregister for this event.

Registration opens on Thursday, Oct. 1. Once registration opens, participants will need to register their vehicle with the number of children riding (ages 12 and under) for a specific 15-minute time slot. Please do not arrive more than 15 minutes before your designated trick-or-treat time. Vehicles that arrive early will be instructed to come back at the correct time. Register, starting Oct. 1, at townoffarragut.org/register.

Vehicles must enter Jamestowne Blvd. from the southbound side of Campbell Station Road; trick-or-treat traffic will not be allowed to turn left from the northbound lanes. Please plan your route accordingly. All participants must be in vehicles. No walkers or bikers will be allowed. Please hang treat bags on side-view mirrors or place them in your open trunk. All vendors will wear face coverings, and all participants in vehicles with open windows are encouraged to wear face coverings as well.

Freaky Friday is a free event; however, participants are asked to bring items to benefit the local Ronald McDonald House. For a list of suggested donations, visit the Facebook event page. Along with items, cash donations are always gratefully accepted - no gift is too small to make a difference.

Businesses and community groups can register to hand out items at townoffarragut.org/register. Currently registration is only open for returning vendors. New vendors can register Oct. 1 through Oct. 23, so long as space allows.

The Farragut’s Parks and Rec staff has diligently worked to ensure this is a safe and fun event for the community to enjoy, even though it is a different setup than usual. For more information about Freaky Friday, contact Brittany Spencer at bspencer@townoffarragut.org or

Incorporated in 1980, the Town of Farragut has top schools, safe neighborhoods and high development standards, making it one of the best places to live in the Southeast.
