WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah — Make-A-Wish Utah is hosting a Disney-themed drive-thru trick-or-treat event that will take place at the Maverik Center on October 25.

From 3:30 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. Make-A-Wish children and their families can collect candy from their vehicles at eighteen different stations. 

Staff and volunteers are encouraged to dress as their favorite Disney movie character, said a release from MAWU. Also, the release notes that those handing out candy will wear face masks. Hand sanitizer will also be available.

The candy, over 2,000 pounds, comes from community members and Harmons donations throughout the valley.
