The Winston-Salem Police Department is partnering with the Winston-Salem Police Foundation and Galilee Missionary Baptist Church to hold a free candy giveaway during a Public Safety Drive-Through Fall Festival, from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 31, in the church parking lot at 4129 Northampton Drive, Winston-Salem.

This is a drive-through event only; children will not be allowed to walk up. In addition to the candy distribution, a variety of public safety vehicles will be on display. Kids are encouraged to come in their Halloween costumes, said Sgt. Shena Nelson, who is leading the planning for the event.

“With these trying times, the goal for this event is to give our children some sense of normality,” Nelson said. “2020 has been so chaotic and hectic for our children, they deserve some happiness.”  

The Winston-Salem Police Foundation is providing monetary support to purchase candy for the event. Other agencies participating in the festival include the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office, the Forsyth County Fire Department and Forsyth County EMS.
