GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — Grand Valley Power is hosting a free event called Glow Halloween, which focuses on safety and community-wide fun on October 28 and 29. The event is at 845 22 Road, Grand Junction, Colorado, at Grand Valley Power’s main headquarters, from 10 A.M. – 5 P.M. each day.
During the event, GVP invites guests to stop by their lobby to pick up prepacked grab-n-go bags that include glow sticks, Halloween coloring sheets, a spooky Halloween checklist, a mini craft kit, and of course, treats! Back by popular demand, a curbside pickup experience will continue for those who want to stay in their vehicles or prefer more social distancing. Guests can text “GLOWGVP” to (970) 499-1313 once they arrive at the office and employees deliver the grab bags to your vehicle.
“On average, children are more than twice as likely to be hit by a car and killed on Halloween than on any other day of the year according to the National Safety Council. Our first priority is the safety of our workforce and of the general public. It’s important to bring awareness for parents and drivers to be especially alert during Halloween as costumed children and pets fill the street,” said Christmas Wharton, Communications Manager at Grand Valley Power, “Wearing bright colors, glow sticks or reflective tape can help drivers see your loved ones during trick-or-treating.”
All items will be prepacked by GVP employees who have taken the recommended procedures such as sanitizing their hands and health screenings before packing items into the bags. GVP is following recommended event guidelines provided by Mesa County Public Health. As a reminder, please do not participate in the event if you feel sick or have been recently exposed to COVID-19.
