Greater Fall River Re-Creation and City of Fall River Hosting Free Halloween Drive-in Event

In lieu of their annual Halloween party, Greater Fall River Re-Creation is teaming up with Mayor Paul Coogan and the City of Fall River to put on a Halloween themed Drive-in movie at Durfee High School.


On Friday, October 30th, Mayor Coogan and Re-Creation invite residents to come and enjoy a Drive-in screening of Halloween favorite “Hocus Pocus”. 


Along with the movie, the Re-Creation team is decorating the lot and will be passing out candy to children. 


Guests are encouraged to come in costume and Re-Creation will be holding a costume contest for kids aged 3-13. Winners will be announced the following Monday, November 2nd.


There will be two showings of the movie on October 30th. They are as follows:


Show 1: Gates open at 5pm; Show starts at 6pm


Show 2: Gates open at 7:45pm; Show starts at 8:30pm


Unlike the other Drive-in movies hosted at Durfee this summer, this event will require a

ticket. Tickets are free and can be obtained in one of the following ways:


“We know that Fall River’s families have had a strange year, and that this will not be a normal

Halloween,” remarked Mayor Paul Coogan. “That is why we are so excited to work together

with Re-Creation to give families a safe, free night of Halloween festivity.”
