Where to Take the Kids for Safe Trick or Treating in Sarasota & Manatee


Sarasota County Sheriff's Office - Drive Thru Halloween Fun
Friday, October 30th, 6pm-8pm

The idea is simple... pack up the kids, throw on their costumes, and drive through our parking lot where a few deputies will be handing out candy and other giveaways. It will be short and sweet but it's an opportunity to get you out of the house and the kids excited about free candy and seeing our guys and gals in uniform.

The event will take place from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Our address is 6010 Cattleridge Blvd. Please enter Cattleridge Blvd. between the Arby’s restaurant and BP convenience store, before heading north toward the event. Because this is a drive-thru program, there will be no on-site parking and all attendees are asked to remain in their vehicles. For the safety of both attendees and agency members, face masks are strongly encouraged.
