COVID-19 can’t stop the ghosts and goblins from coming out this weekend. In Jackson County, despite the pandemic, there will still be several Halloween events to attend, if you choose.

On Friday, Oct. 30, Highlands Health and Rehab will host a drive by Halloween parade for their residents. The community is encouraged to attend to help make this a fun event for the residents.

Decorate a vehicle, wear a costume or just drive through, honk and show you care. Parade line up begins at 1:30 p.m. on Parks Avenue, behind the Jackson County Jail. No candy or items allowed to be given to residents. Parade participants must remain in their vehicle. No contact with residents will be allowed.
