OCTOBER 2020: MIAMI CHILDREN’S MUSEUM CELEBRATES MICHIMU’S HALLOWEEN DRIVE-THRU SATURDAY, OCTOBER 31ST, 11AM-2PM

With this year’s Halloween festivities in doubt, Miami Children’s Museum is stepping up and making sure there is still a trick – or treat – to scout.  Trick or treat from your car seat this Halloween at MiChiMu’s Halloween Drive-Thru!  Miami Children’s Museum believes that everyone deserves a Happy Halloween, that’s why they have partnered with some awesome organizations to provide a safe and free trick or treat experience to all families this Halloween.  Dress up in your favorite costume and head to the Museum on Saturday, October 31st from 11:00AM – 2:00PM for a festive, not-so-spooky, drive-thru celebration for kids of all ages.

The first 500 children will receive a free trick or treat bag filled with candy, trinkets, healthy snacks, a book and other special treats.  They will also receive a carton of Chocolate Milk, the official drink of Halloween, from Florida Dairy Farmers.  This event is sponsored in part by Florida Dairy Farmers, Caleb & Calder Sloan’s Awesome Foundation, Geico North Miami, ARA Food Corporation, and Fabricant & Company, PA.

The system is set up to be a contactless drive-thru pickup, so cars must form a line around the Museum, pull up to the distribution point when it is their turn, then exit the facility after distribution is complete.  Guests are required to stay in their cars at all times.  It is first come first served while supplies last, and no walk ups will be allowed.  The Museum is located on Watson Island at 980 MacArthur Causeway, Miami, FL 33132.

So, buckle up and ride on down to the not-so-spookiest event of the year!  Come and visit your friends at MiChiMu’s Halloween Drive-Thru on Saturday, October 31st from 11:00AM – 2:00PM, where you can trick or treat from your car seat.
