Drive-through holiday event rescheduled

Published 11:16 am Saturday, December 5, 2020

The Suffolk Parks & Recreation Holiday Drive-Thru event originally scheduled for this Saturday at the Northern Shores Recreation Center, 6701 Respass Beach Road, has been rescheduled for Dec. 19 from 11 a.m. to noon.

All children up to age 12 are invited to participate with their families in this free event. Drive through the parking lots while you and your family are dressed in your favorite holiday pajamas to receive a gift bag. As you cruise by the Recreation Center,  holiday elves will safely welcome you with social distancing and will provide children with a goody bag of cheer (while supplies last).

There will be two other opportunities to drive-thru in December; on Saturday, Dec. 12, 2020, at East Suffolk Recreation Center, 138 S. Sixth St., and on Saturday, Dec. 19, 2020, at the Whaleyville Recreation Center, 132 Robertson St. All three drive-thru events will be from 11 a.m. to noon.
