Lowe’s (LOW) is making sure that families have a safe trick-or-treating experience during the coronavirus pandemic by holding a curbside event at all of its stores.

The home improvement retailer’s drive-through trick-or-treating will be held Oct. 22-29 from 6 to 7 p.m. nationwide. Families are invited to reserve a spot with their local store to drive up and receive candy as well as a small pumpkin at no charge. Reservations for the event can be made starting on Saturday at Lowes.com/DIY.

The announcement comes two weeks after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released new guidelines for Halloween 2020, deeming door-to-door trick-or-treating a high-risk activity for spreading the coronavirus. The CDC has also said that indoor haunted houses and costume parties, as well as hayrides, are high-risk Halloween activities that could promote the spread of COVID-19.

“We know that customers still want to celebrate Halloween, even if the holiday may look different for us this year,” Joe McFarland, Lowe's executive vice president of stores, said in a statement released Monday. “While the pandemic has changed many elements of everyday life, the tradition of trick-or-treating doesn't have to be one of them.”

“Our associates take great pride in serving our communities, and as we all find new ways to safely celebrate the holiday, we look forward to welcoming families to our drive-through curbside trick-or-treating events this year,” he added.

In addition to the curbside trick-or-treating, Lowe’s is urging families to carve a pumpkin in appreciation of the heroes on the frontlines in celebration of National First Responders Day on Oct. 28. Pumpkin designs can be shared on social media using the hashtag #BuildThanks.
