An auto-related event is being planned for Halloween 2020.
The Beyond City Limits, a newly formed local car group, has been given permission by the McMinnville Board of Mayor and Aldermen to host a car show and trunk-or-treat on the property surrounding the Blue Building.
“We really want to be a community based car group,” said Camron Jones, event organizer and member of Beyond City Limits. “We want to hold community events with all ages there having fun. We know a lot of people were disappointed about Back to the Strip being canceled. I was personally. We decided we wanted to host a car event in place of it.”
He added, “We want this to be for all ages, not just older people with classic cars but also younger people with newer cars.”
Originally proposed for Oct. 24, the date was moved to Oct. 31 so it won’t compete with other events.
Jones says that change did allow the inclusion of a non-traditional Halloween event for parents and their trick-or-treaters.
“We wanted to offer trunk or treat,” said Jones.
Participants will be allowed to offer Halloween candy to children as they trick or treat from vehicle to vehicle.
Event participants will be cognizant of the pandemic.
“We plan to adhere to COVID-19 guidelines,” said Jones.
The Board of Mayor and Aldermen unanimously approved the request for use of the Blue Building property for Oct. 31, from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m., provided the group secures liability insurance covering the event, a requirement of events approved for city-owned property.
