“This is Halloween”

Posted on 10-27-2020

On Sunday, Nov. 1st, the Revival House, Hudson Fields, and the Beebe Foundation will host another free outdoor movie event, “This is Halloween” to again benefit Beebe Medical Center in its ongoing efforts to help Sussex County during the Covid-19 pandemic. Food, music, artists, vendors, and safely distanced fun and entertainment will once again mark the event, capped off by a double-feature screening “A Nightmare Before Christmas” and the original 1978 classic “Halloween.”

The event will mirror the format used for this summer’s successful “Jawsfest,” in which groups were seated in “pods” in the field and following all CDC regulations throughout the event.  “We were very enthused with the crowd at Jawsfest,” said Rob Waters, one of the event organizers. “And because everyone was so responsible and we were able to raise money for Beebe, we wanted to do it again in time for our favorite holiday, Halloween.”

Featuring several food and beverage trucks, local vendors, and live music. The event will feature a limited number of trick-or-treat bags for younger attendees and there will be various stations around the Hudson Fields grounds for them to collect treats, starting around 3:00 pm.

“We realize that Halloween may be a little different this year with the pandemic, so we wanted to give kids (and adults) a chance to dress in their costumes,” said Revival House’s Rob Rector. “We are working with Hudson Fields to have a path along the perimeter of the event where kids can line up and receive treats in a safe manner.”

Once again, the event is free and open to the public, but donations will be accepted at the door with all proceeds going to Beebe Healthcare’s frontline workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

So pack up your little pumpkins and head out to Hudson Fields on Sunday, Nov. 1st for a ghoulishly good time at the “This is Halloween” fundraiser for Beebe Healthcare.
