And Here Are Recommended Halloween Activities Based on Risk Zone.


  Trick or Treat!

It’s on like Donkey Kong! Study up on the official trick or treat guidelines and make sure to stay safe while trick or treating!

  Neighborhood Costume Party

Keeping in mind large gathering guidelines for your area, this is the perfect time to get together with a few neighbors, show off your costumes, and throw one wicked party! A cul-de-sac or front yard is the perfect backdrop for a social distancing soirée, just don’t forget the strategically spaced seating, full moon music, and bucketloads of candy!

  Grown Folk Fun

Fright Feast: Invite a limited number of guests over for a themed costume dinner party complete with devilish drinks, scary sides, and monstrous main dishes! Perfect wine pairings and severed finger foods are only limited by your wild imagination!


  Trick or Treat!

Time to get the treats, but before you do… it’s super important to strictly adhere to the official trick or treat guidelines! Focus on safety first and make sure you’re only visiting the neighbors that have safety measures in place!

  Neighborhood Parade

Organize a neighborhood costume parade where the route is predetermined and marked to maintain safe distances between participants. Stay safe by incorporating sanitize stations, yellow caution tape, 6ft sidewalk stickers/tape, age group signs and more!

  Face Mask Party

Order up a bunch of plain face masks and have yourself a paint party! Decorate, doodle and bedazzle your way to some snazzy new face masks to wear this fall.

In short

In the yellow zone, trick or treating is still possible, but you should know that are visiting places that follow safety protocols so you can stay safe. Any party goers should be wearing face masks indoors.


  Trick or Treat in Reverse

Get the kids all decked out in their costume of choice and hang out with them in the front yard as neighbors walk or drive by and deliver candy!

  Neighborhood Candy Hunt

A trick or treat treasure map can point to all the goodies or just let ‘em run wild and discover strategically placed stashes of sweets! Make sure to lay the ground rules to keep social distancing guidelines in place!

  Neighborhood Pub Crawl:

For all the late-night shenanigan seekers who are over the (blue) moon excited about having an extra hour to celebrate this year, some social distancing shots may be in order! Set up driveway stations with Halloween libations and reconnect with your neighborhood pals!

In short

Kids can get dressed up in their favorite costumes and hang out in their front yards, and neighbors can walk or drive by and deliver candy to kids. Parties should be outdoors only with social distancing guidelines followed.


  Candy Stations

Unleash your imagination and let the kids run amok all through the house, both inside and out! Pull out all the stops with a variety of different candy stations, custom made with your little crew in mind!

  Limited Invite Party

Select a small group of your closest friends and fam and plan an unforgettable get together under the light of the blue moon! Adhere to the small gathering guidelines in your neck of the woods and have some fun with tarot cards or the Ouija board!


  Grown Folk Fun

If you’ve never been to a murder mystery, here’s your chance to go all out with an online murder mystery party! Invite your friends and fam to don a costume and join in on the fun. Design your own party or sign up for one online.

  In short!

In the red zone, trick or treating is not recommended. There are too many risks involved. Instead, try online media like zoom parties, Netflix parties, and setting up candy stations inside and outside of the house for kids to discover throughout the night.
