SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — For families who want to give their kids some Halloween fun but avoid traditional trick-or-treating, the city is offering a quick and safe alternative.

Wednesday through Saturday, the City of San Diego will offer free bags of candy for families to drive through or walk up and select as an alternative to going door-to-door this Halloween amid the pandemic.

The sites will be set up at various times across 27 recreation centers in the city. A complete list of participating recreation centers is online.

Families and kids are encouraged to dress up in their costumes. Visitors will get a free bag of candy as well as "a scary surprise or two," according to the city.

All recreation centers will be following the recommended guidelines under the county's public health orders, so social distancing and face coverings will be required.
