Vehicles will enter the site from the eastbound lanes of U.S. 60 and proceed along the one-quarter-mile running track that circles the building. Children will remain inside the vehicles while costumed volunteers hand out treats at 15 to 20 stations along the route. The cars will continue around the track and re-enter U.S. 60 eastbound.
