Looking for a spooktacular Halloween event? Join us at the Harnett County Courthouse Parking Lot on October 30 from 6PM-8PM for a drive-thru Halloween trick or treat event to receive free Halloween goodies.
Vehicles will enter the drive-thru event at the entrance of the Courthouse on W. Cornelius Harnett Boulevard in Lillington and follow a designated route through the Courthouse parking lot. County staff from 12 departments, including Health Department, Veterans Services, Tax Department, General Services, Solid Waste, Soil & Water Conservation District, Sheriff's Office, Emergency Services, Department of Social Services, Parks & Recreation, and the Public Library will have Halloween themed stations and hand out pre-packaged Halloween goodie bags to participants. Goodie bags will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis. All individuals will be required to stay in their vehicles during the event.
Families are encouraged to dress up in costumes. Halloween costume masks will not block potentially infectious droplets, so face coverings are recommended to be worn.
