ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - As the Rockford community continues to struggle through the pandemic a local church is trying to make the best of it by hosting drive-thru trick-or-treat events.

Families made their way to the Crossroads Community Church in Winnebago Sunday for “Treat Street.”

During the event kids received a bag of treats and took a drive through the church parking lot to look at all the decorated car trunks. Organizers say the pandemic has canceled so many events, so they want to provide kids a place to dress up and get some candy.

“We’ve had 70 to 80 cars come through which has been really great," said Pastor Manny Carabello. "I have got to connect with a few people. People from all over are coming to do something fun and safe.”
