OXFORD, Miss (WTVA) - The Community Church of Oxford hosted its annual fall festival.
Pastor Fish Robinson said the church wanted a way for kids to trick or treat despite the coronavirus.
"We thought, we weren't going to give it up," said Pastor Fish Robinson. "We gotta do our Fall Festival and the best way to do that is a drive-through."
Over 1,000 individuals drove through to participate in the Fall Festival at the Lafayette County Multipurpose center.
The church rented out the center and filled the lot with over 50 trunks full of candy. Each car was decorated to provide a sense of creativity.
Many of the volunteers believe this was one way to bring the community together.
"I think it's a little bit more personal," said volunteer Alexa Sircy. "Because we are able to meet each individual kid and see each individual's costume."
The church has been collecting candy since September to make sure that each kid goes home with a bag full of candy.
"We're just really really excited about the opportunity to be able to reach out to our community," said Robinson. "And maybe bring a little bit of normalcy in the midst of craziness."
This marked the fifth year the church has sponsored the event.
