Drive-through trick or treating at the Lucky 7 Casino and Hotel in Smith River was a huge hit - with cars spilling onto Highway 101 at times for half a mile before winding their way through the resort’s decorated parking lot.
“This is a great opportunity for us and for youth who may not have the opportunity to go door-to-door because of the environment we are living in today,” said Lucky 7’s General Manager Michael Black.
The festivities included costumes, live music, scary displays and plenty of treats for kids who hung out their hands from car windows and opened van doors.
“More people from the community came out than we expected, but this is a happy problem,” Black said. “We are looking to have a Christmas holiday event as well, so this is just the first step in doing this.”
