Halloween drive-thrus in Taos and Dixon on Saturday (Oct. 31) provided communities an opportunity to celebrate the holiday in lieu of trick-or-treating.

The Town of Taos partnered with local merchants to host a Grab and Go Halloween event along Civic Plaza Drive, where 2500 bags filled with candy, toys and hand sanitizer were passed out to motorists and costumed passengers.

Later in the evening, the Dixon Volunteer Fire Department hosted its inaugural "Dixon Zombie Fire Station." Volunteers handed out trick-or-treat bags and zombie-firefighters jumped out to scare passengers along the way.

Maybe the hand sanitizer was a bad idea. Leaked all over my kids bag... 80% alcohol. A little ridiculous.
