Flick or treat Halloween Drive In Movie Drive Thru Trail

In order to help residents safely enjoy Halloween this year, the City of Redlands is sponsoring a family-friendly “Flick or Treat” Halloween drive-thru and drive-in movie event.

The all-ages family-friendly drive-thru trail will keep the fun traditions and excitement of Halloween alive in a safe and engaging way.
