The Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce hosts the annual Halloween Spectacular at Randolph Park on October 31. In 2020 fashion, this year’s spectacular consists of a Trick or Treat Trail drive-thru adventure packed with more than ten candy stops followed by a Halloween DAK Lights show. An event entry fee is not required, but $10 donations will be encouraged and accepted to support Coats for Kids.
Spreading joy amidst an untraditional year, the Chamber has planned a unique celebration rooted in traditional Halloween essentials. Besides the drive-thru candy trail and lights show, the Trick or Treat Trail will include a Facebook Live Pumpkin Carving Contest where attendees can vote for their favorite pumpkin carving. The contest features WPSK’s Curtis in the Morning as the DJ. The 2020 Pumpkin Carving Contest includes reigning champion, Town of Dublin Manager Tye Kirkner. Kirkner’s challengers include Pulaski County Administrator Jonathan Sweet and Assistant Pulaski County Administrator Anthony Akers as well as Laura Walters, Pulaski County Board of Supervisors and Robin Burnette, the Blue Ridge Fudge Lady.
In these unprecedented times, community is the glue that holds us together. Candy booth stops are hosted by Pulaski County, Alliance Express Urgent Care, Town of Dublin, Women’s Resource Center, Building Bridges, LewisGale Hospital Pulaski, Americare Plus, Pulaski County Schools, NRV Credit Union, TG Howard, Duncan Suzuki, New River Resource Authority, Martin’s Pharmacy Dublin and SERVPRO. Special thanks to Luttrell Staffing Group, Thomas Holsinger, Coats for Kids, First Bank and Trust and the Women’s Resource Center for candy donations. The Chamber would also like to thank the Pulaski County Sheriffs Department and the Town of Dublin Police Department for managing traffic control.
In order for this Halloween to be the best one yet, the Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce is asking for candy donations and local businesses to be candy stops. Candy donations can be brought to the Pulaski County Visitor Center or New River Valley Radio at 7080 Lee Highway, Fairlawn. Please drop off donations by October 23. Want to help or be a candy stop?
