3 fun ways to party when COVID is cramping our regularly-scheduled festivities
Halloween is officially the kick-off to our Holiday Season. It’s the first big bang festivity, yet this year, we’re questioning what it’s going to look like, or if we’re even going to be allowed to hold our festivities at all.
Just in case trick-or-treating isn’t allowed, we’re sharing a few creative ways to throw a Halloween festivity during the time of COVID. Get ready for some ghoulish fun!
Throw an intimate party indoors
You can still throw an indoor party for your nearest and dearest. Heck, depending on where you live, this might be a better option in case of inclement weather.
Here’s a little tip: Put out appetizers that are true finger foods – grab and go options. This way, you don’t risk double-dippers in your family-style offerings. COVID or no COVID, Fall is still cold and flu season, too, so single-serving size finger food may just be a more health-conscious way to go.

Nothing says Fall better than a raging bonfire. Aside from the smell that takes multiple showers to wash out of your hair, it’s Fall at its finest. Why not consider throwing an outdoor bonfire party for your besties?
Call around to your local farms, or – as in the case of some beach towns – your local beach resorts. You may even have to get a permit to have one, so be sure to plan ahead. And be sure to read up on your campfire safety so you know exactly how to tackle this from a logistical standpoint.
A bonfire is a great option to get cozy in that crisp Fall air, and it’s such a fun way to make Halloween an exciting occasion during this time when literally everything feels abnormal.
One of my favorite things as a kid, growing up in the Heartland of America, was going on a hayrack ride at a local farm or pumpkin patch. Word on the street is that many places are still holding their annual festivities, and may just be taking some special precautions such as social distancing to make it a little safer this year.
As with any activity, bring along your hand sanitizer for when you can’t easily wash your hands; bring your mask; and of course, remember to avoid touching your face.
Tips to make all your Halloween festivities safe
As with anything you’re doing right now – whether it’s simply going to the grocery store or whether you’re going on an airplane – using common sense goes a long way.
Remember to wash your hands, and avoid touching your face before you do so. Wear your mask when in crowds and abide by your local mandates.
Safety and fun can go hand in hand – and we hope you have a wonderful Halloween, whether you’re trick or treating or taking part in one of our fun activities.
